Revisiting Centres and Peripheries in Iberian Studies. Culture, History and Socio-economic Change. Ed. Mark Gant, Cambridge Scholars Publishing Ltd., 2019


This chapter focuses on the representation of the Catalan photographer, Francesc Boix, who was interned in a Nazi concentration camp, in the generically hybrid grief memoir, El jardín de la memoria, by the contemporary Spanish author, Lea Vélez. This chapter analyses Vélez’s text as a form of affiliative postmemory which revisits the underrepresented legacy of the Spanish concentration camp experience.
