Víznar: Unearthing History

In Víznar, Granada, (southern Spain), a team of archaeologists is racing to search for the remains of some 200 people killed by firing squad at the start of the Spanish civil war. Exhumations of victims of the 1936-39 war and the dictatorship of Francisco Franco that followed, are being investigated by the prosecutor's office in the Víznar ravine as crimes against humanity. These photos were taken at different excavations between 2021 and 2024.
