for the Spain they believed to be better:
Memorial in Jaca cemetery

Captains Fermín Galán and  Ángel García Hernández led a failed uprising in Jaca on 12th and 13th December 1930, a few months before the proclamation of the Second Spanish Republic. Both of them were executed because of the uprising and from the on were known as Martyrs of the Republic and are buried in Huesca civil cemetery.
The coup of 1936 triumphed in Jaca and the repression against those who defended republican values ​​was immediate and savage.
At the main entrance to the Jaca cemetery, on the right, are the tombs of the first shot in August 1936, many of them protagonists in the uprising. in 2010 at the initiative of the Republican Circle of Jaca, the town council raised a memorial to the 400 people shot in the region, a sculpture by the local artist, Pablo Valdevira that remembers, one by one, the hundreds of men and women who were killed.
These photos were taken in December 2020 and show some views of this memorial in Jaca cemetery.
