On Friday 4 February, the Casa de la Memoria La Sauceda was visited by Nieves Concostrina, an award-winning writer and journalist who specializes in history and memorialist issues and has a regular programme on Cadena Ser, and her husband Jesús Pozo, who is also a journalist. They had been in San Roque to take part in a literary event which was organised by the town hall, and we invited them to take the opportunity to visit the Casa de la Memoria while they were in the area.
They were welcomed by the president of the Forum for the Memory of the Campo de Gibraltar, Andrés Rebolledo, the president of the Casa de la Memoria Association, Margarita García, our librarian and archivist Juan Manuel Pizarro and Association members Asun Gálvez and Alberto Vega.
The couple were fascinated by what they saw during their guided tour of the Casa de la Memoria, and are planning a return visit when they also have time to visit La Sauceda and the restored cemetery there. We are very grateful to them for taking time out of their busy agenda to get to know us and what we do, and for their enthusiasm about the possibilities of future collaboration.
Before leaving, Nieves and Jesús signed our visitors’ book, expressing their gratitude for the invitation and thanking us for our hard work and important contribution to the democratic memory movement.
