Just when it seemed that nothing more could be said about the Spanish Civil War, a new voice arrives. The film director and researcher Tània Balló and historian Gonzalo Berger have taken charge of the publication and prologue for a unique historical document and moving human testimony: the daily diary kept by Pilar Duaygües Nebot, a resident of Barcelona, between 1935 and 1940, covering the entire civil war. At the beginning of the conflict, the young woman, who belongs to a progressive middle class family, is just fifteen and her diary entries offer a uncommonly detailed and charming account of the dramatic events that she experiences as well as her teenage hopes and dreams, arguments with friends, the emotions of her first love and her interest in getting an education.
A first person view of the lives of ordinary people caught up in war.
A book that will cause a lot of excitement, not just among the press and academics but also because of its significant emotional content: a first-person testimony from a sensitive, energetic, honest and intelligent teenage girl that will win over a huge number of readers, ranging from young people to the elderly who lived through the same period.
