We locate ourselves in Prats de Lluçanès in 1936, year when Ramon Font was born. At that moment, the Spanish Civil War had just started, something that changed that peaceful and quiet scenario that an inhabitant of a little village could live in the Spanish state. Teresa was born some years later, in 1940, in Sant Feliu Sasserra, but she was born specifically in Oristà. Teresa also heard about the war, but when she was aware of it, the war had already finished. Despite this, she was a testimonial of the consequences of the war.
Time passed by, and Teresa and Ramon met, creating a love relationship that would last till the present time. They met when they were only teenagers, when they had to start working. They started at the age of 13 in a textile company, and their timetable was very strict: they worked from 6 am to 2 am, and from 2 am to 10 am. This schedule was from Monday till Friday, and on Sunday they went to church. They claimed that their salary was neutral, and they sometimes received a money supplement if they did more meters of sewing. Both went to catholic schools, and their classes were full of kids of different ages, and there was a lack of teachers. The classes where taught in the Spanish language, and they were obliged to sing the song calledCara al Sol, song made by Franco’s regime, a dictator who leaded the country. They were forbidden to speak in Catalan in the streets and the school, so they talked in Catalan discreetly.
