    Abstract:
    España tiene una relación traumática con su guerra civil. Del franquismo ni hablamos: es para el discurso oficial del régimen político actual la personificación abyecta del mal, y esa versión oficial es defendida por el actual gobierno izquierdista como la única verdadera y aspira a ser impuesta como la única autorizada. En 2020, y con Franco ya desenterrado y reenterrado, tras el ritual oficial de humillación y maldición pública, volvemos sobre dos retroposts de 2010, a cuenta de un libro de 2006 ( 'Guerra Civil: Mito y memoria', editado por Julio Aróstegui y François Godicheau). La retrospección siempre aporta iluminación, sobre el pasado, sobre el presente, y sobre uno mismo. __________________________________________________________________________ Spain has a traumatic relationship with its own civil war, not to mention with Franquism. The latter is, for the official discourse of the present political régime the abject personification of evil. This official version of history is promoted by the leftist government as the only true one, and there are plans for its imposition as the only authorized one. In 2020, with Franco already unburied and reburied, after the official ritual of humiliation and public abjection, we go back to two retroposts from 2010, dealing with the 2006 book 'Guerra Civil: Mito y Memoria', edited by Julio Aróstegui and François Godicheau. Retrospection always gives rise to insight, on the past, on the present, and on oneself. Keywords: Spanish civil war, Franquism, Historiography, History, Spanish history, Retrospection, Abjection,
