Camp de la Bota, 1974

Archivo Maria Favà

13-1-1974, images from the archive of the journalist Maria Favà, taken in the slum of the Campo de la Bota, during the demolition and deportation of its residents towards the new blocks in La Mina (in the background). Now this area is known as the “Forum of Cultures 2004”. A memorial stone mentioned the thousands of political prisoners executed by Francisco Franco in this part of coast; it asked “peace, but not oblivion”. It was removed to celebrate the “Forum”.
