Interview to Ramon Font


In our work of Oral History, we wanted to interview our grandparents, but it was impossible for us for different reasons. Among the possible options, we opted for Ramon Font, a neighbor Pradenc of life, who told us what his life and that of his family were like during the postwar period.Ramon was born on July 30, 1937 in a small town of the province of Barcelona, ​​in Prats de Lluçanès. He is now 81 years old.He is a single child, therefore, his parents only had to worry about caring for him and they did not have much difficulty speaking financially.As we will explain throughout the work, her family were not very political and did not get into some mess. His father lived the Spanish Civil War; Specifically, he played a task in which he had to remove the corpses that were on the edges of the road. It was a very tough time of his life. He did not have to go to the army due to his advanced age.

The historical context of the Spanish Civil War post-war period goes from 1939 to 1959, just after the Civil War, which lasted for three years and left serious consequences throughout the country: demographic, economic and social.All this brought Spain to a great period of cultural / political repression and poverty that lasted a couple of decades, under the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco.Francoism: It goes from 1939 to 1975 and it is all the period in which there was a dictatorship on the part of Colonel Francisco Franco.During this stage, the Church gained great power, and the unipartisement was restored, only one political party was allowed, which was FET and JONS, (Tradicionalista Spanish Falange and the Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista)
