Artist's Description

I took this picture in Barcelona in one of the Gothic church squares which still had scars from the Spanish Civil war.

While our tour guide was explaining the history, a class of school children were having an art class there. This little girl sat beneath one of the walls to work on her drawing, in the very place where her ancestors were lined up by Franco’s army and shot mercilessly. Those holes on the walls are from those gun shots. This year happens to be the 75th anniversary of that war (la guerra as they say it over there).

It was such a poignant moment to see the future and past come together in one place.
