Calling to mind the inanimate characteristic in the animation brings about another important aspect how the archival works to support the animated narrative. His very present image in this scene, especially one in which he is elevated above the crowds, surveying the victory festivities, also heightens the sense of surveillance in the narrative. This second space is likewise marked by a gloomy color palette and a haunting sense of surveillance.
The film studio in which the live interviews were filmed consists of a solid black backdrop accented by smaller panels on to which a dull beam of soft light is cast. This space emerges as an extension of the haunted house that is depicted by the graphic novel animation components of the film. The camera, never still during the segments, creeps around the expert witnesses in an eerie way that is evocative of a haunting presence circling the inhabitants of a dwelling.
The way in which the camera creates the movement in the scene is an element that links the live interview segments and graphic novel sequences. As the camera bobs, draws near to, and sways around the subjects, it rarely provides a direct, head-on shot, as if the interviewees are unaware of this looming presence, and are in fact addressing an unseen audience. Aside from these two key physical spaces, there are also important temporal spaces in the narrative. The setting of the film studio seen in Figure 4.
On the surface, midth century Spain as reconstructed by the graphic novel animation style also appears to be a space of the past, yet closer attention to this space, especially when juxtaposed with the indisputable spaces of past and 95 present depicted through live-action and archival footage, reveals that it is actually a space in which both the past and the present are in flux. By narrating the past in a language of the present — that of the graphic novel — the film houses the testimony of the past in a visual aesthetic that reflects the present. As Bliss Cua Lim states of the ghost film, The haunting recounted by ghost narratives are not merely instances of the past reasserting itself in a stable present, as is usually assumed; on the contrary, the ghostly return of traumatic events precisely troubles the boundaries of past, present, and future, and cannot be written back to the complacency of a homogeneous, empty time.
The color palette of the graphic novel scenes, largely constituted by gray tones, also speaks to this spatiotemporal in-betweenness. It does not firmly signal the past as depicted by the grainy black-and-white footage of midth century Spain, nor is it the present as depicted in the live-action, full color, crisp images. Instead, this time and place lies somewhere in between, or rather depicts both past and present simultaneously, becoming the visual gray area seen on screen.
It is the medium through which the spectre of the past is re animated. In this regard, there is an important juxtaposition between the two haunted physical spaces within in the film, one that has to do with the notion of letting the ghost speak. The film studio is a place in which the ghost is spoken of, while the animated narrative is a place in which the ghost speaks.
Derrida suggests that we talk to ghosts out of a need "to exorcize not in order to chase away the ghosts, but this time to grant them the right…to a hospitable memory…out of a concern for justice" Once he has done so, the nightmare that lasted 30 years prior to the Transition, and then an additional 30 years following in the habitual silence, can come to an end. The space of the film is inscribed with the collective memories of both past Spain and present Spain through the dual narrative threads described in the previous section.
Specifically, the location of the exhumation is within the animated realm of the narrative. The tool of animation creates a space for exhuming the ghosts of Franco's post-war Spain. The graphic novel style animates the ghosts of the past in both senses of the word. On the one hand it illustrates them, and on the other it gives them new life that allows for their return.
A brighter turn in the color palette, at times iridescent white, also suggests that his home has returned to a heimliche place once again. This time, however, the subjective lens is not restricted to a hole-in-the-wall perspective, but rather offers a full view of his surroundings. Likewise, the feeling is no longer one of surveillance, but rather the bright color palette and wide angle shot suggest both freedom to see and be seen.
As the door opens, the camera draws backwards and we are left gazing at the back of the animated Diego figure which is the first indication of an exorcism of the ghost.
An audible exhale as this takes place emphasizes the moment of release. Though there is a moment in which the duo is depicted in their animated forms, the camera again pans outward drawing the spectator away from the animated bodies as they simultaneously morph into the archival bodies of the Manuel and Juliana. Roe ponders, however, whether or not the sudden switch from a consistent animation style throughout to live-action material undermines the potential of the animation that came before, especially at this moment of narrative resolution. The turn to archival in this film that employs the trope of haunting is a reinforcement of the exhumation of the ghost, of the departure of the past from the present, and of the perceived end of the haunting through the long-awaited unearthing of the past.
Through the space that the film creates for memory to be mediated between the past and the present, a neutralization occurs in which the activities of the ghost can cease. This concluding scene is another notable point in the narrative in which the relationship between the animated and the archival can be seen. Accompanied by his wife, his only few moments outside of his home for what would be decades are marked by terror and panic. The threat of surveillance was still very real at this time. The diminishing of this threat is evident in this final, archival scene which depicts smiling, elderly couple as they roam the street in the light of day at a leisurely pace.
The trope of haunting ceases to exist in the narrative at the moment this archival scene appears, as it is at this point that the exhumation has taken place. As we suggested in section 4. Narratives of trauma that were habitually silenced by the pacto del olvido are being unearthed, alongside thousands of bodies that are being exhumed from mass graves. Given that Manuel H. But more so, the trope of haunting is used to depict a symbolic exhumation of the ghosts after creating a cinematic space in which their testimony can be heard.
Not only that, but the film eradicates the trope of haunting itself in the turn to the archival in the conclusion. This sudden change in aesthetic suggests that the consequences of the civil war and ensuing dictatorship can now be relegated firmly to the past.

The notion that animation has been employed as a tactic to suture a fragmented past was discussed in the previous two chapters, though through differing implications. Although the inclusion of animation in documentary film is not novel, this practice in cinematography has grown at a remarkable pace during the last three decades, beginning in the s when the animated documentary also began to earn a name for itself in film scholarship as a genre in its own right. Filmmakers in Hispanic cinema have likewise grappled with the question of how to best go about re-telling equally somber historical narratives.
How do you impress upon an adult audience the impact that an armed conflict and displacement has had on children and childhood? How do you convey the subjective experience of a haunting, spectral past in the present Spanish imaginary? Film scholarship is beginning to note, however, that it is not just the fact of animation that makes such films notable, but rather it is the function that animation plays within the filmic narrative. As a result, the dual-biography sutures a past fragmented — one marked by disappearances — through a collage technique.

But the result is that the text does not reflect the official history, but rather creative interpretation of the filmmaker. Hence, the animation takes part in the work of suturing of the history, as we have seen in the first two movies, but in a different way: it works to separate and to liberate, or unsuture, the past from the present, imitating the work that contemporary Spain is undertaking in their social, cultural and political movements that aim to at long last commemorating the victims of Francoist Spain.
In providing close-readings of these films, this thesis has aimed to contribute to the broader discussion of the animated documentary that is happening in other global cinemas, as well as give much deserved critical attention to the three productions from Hispanic cinema. Current research on the animated documentary in the field of Hispanic studies is scarce, to say the least, despite the fact that filmmakers in Spain and Latin America have produced award-winning short and feature-length films in recent years.
Further, it seems important and innovative work is being done in these regions. The three films analyzed in this thesis all exemplify a distinct and purposeful audiovisual juxtaposition of the archival and animated, the latter two films especially so with the juxtaposition occurring on the visual level with that purposeful alternation between live-action footage and animated reconstructions.
However, a psychoanalytical approach is just one way that these films could have been studied. The above suggestions are only a few ways in which the animated documentary can and will continue to be explored in what is an exciting and fertile new area of scholarship.

Our image viewer uses the IIIF 2. Re animating history : animated documentaries in contemporary Hispanic cinema. Nagtegaal, Jennifer. University of British Columbia. Animation for adult audiences is a booming sector in Hispanic cinema in both fiction and non-fiction films alike.
This is particularly true of the documentary genre, in which Spanish and Latin American filmmakers are employing various animation techniques to essentially re animate particularly traumatic periods of history. The recent turn to animation in recounting historical narratives leads us to contemplate the purpose and effect of veering away from conventional live-action portrayals in documentary history.

Hispanic Studies. Despite warning signs of tension, such as the military presence seen in Figure 2. A big yellow sun, brightly colored flowers, fruit trees, green mountain ranges, and various winged and legged creatures fill each scene. The Garden of Eden-esque way the children have drawn their home makes it appear as a utopia. The idealistic vision of their life before displacement occured is echoed in their testimonies. Carrillo and Andrade emphasize play further by filling in the testimonial narrative silences with scenes of the children playing tag, roughhousing, playing fetch with their pets, and school room antics.
A scene that bridges this playful past and the somber present features a group of young recruits playing football en-route to the base camp. Further, as they clamber into the back of the recruitment pick-up truck, their demeanor reveals that they view the experience as a joyride. This scene suggests that even the conflict itself for some of these children was conceptualized as a game.
Luna purports that this is reinforced by the way the original drawings in this version are given a video-game like aesthetic. Y eso sonaba rumm tatatata. Although the aim of both games is to shoot, the ball and the bullet have markedly different impacts on their target, as well as on the marksman. The deflated ball at the hands of the recruiter is symbolic of a transition from boy to man. She gives him an embrace as he symbolically places his hat on her head.
Her youth is emphasized as she screws up her face in a defiant childlike pout. Further, it seems out of place on top of her pigtails; an exceptionally childlike hairstyle. The hat becomes symbolic that it is time to don her grownup clothes, albeit too soon. This is the same tension that can be seen in her opening segment. From Bogota to their rural homes in the interior, and each narrative thread ends with their exile and initial adjustment into the city.
Yet, the conclusion of the film depicts the same dark and rainy city featured in the opening segments with a brighter color palette. The children, despite their trauma, are seemingly able to find hope. A communal football match suggests a reclaiming of childhood. What is 32 recuperated, however, is a changed childhood: one without a father, with artificial limbs, without the comforts of home, with carrying the heavy burden of what was seen and done in the guerrilla forces.
The testimonies that the children give at the beginning suggest a disillusionment of life in the city now that they have settled in. As one scholar has noted, the impact on the city is two-fold: on the one hand it allows them to recuperate their childhood, while on the other hand they have moved from one violent reality to another. Other forms of play, namely football, also play a prominent role.
The adult figures, namely the guerrilla forces, teachers and parental figures are directly affected by violence and displacement, while the children are bystanders. The opening interviews serve to set the scene for a follow-up that Carrillo has in the works. Although Colombia is transitioning towards a post-conflict era, the conflict will have had lasting effects on the victims, especially those who were displaced.
As a continuation of this feature length film, the purpose will be to show how the displaced children view the cruelty of their new home in the city of Bogota. As the Introduction to this thesis stated, scholars are animated film Wells and animated documentary Roe , ; Ward , have argued that the art of animated can lead to an uncanny viewing experience. These cracks form as the 2D drawings adopt life-like qualities of the narrators. Specifically, the pictures end up embodying genuine emotions and motive, they give utterances in real voices - complete with improper syntax and the childlike uhms and aws as they chatter away above the ambient noise of the recording files - and they demonstrate life-like body and eye movements.
Documentary theory has long assumed that both image and sound bear an indexical relationship to its source: an indisputable relationship between body and voice. In other words, animated documentaries of a testimonial nature challenge predispositions the viewer may have to equate notions of realism with resemblance. In fact, the body of the interview subject is often the culprit through which the uncanny emotional response typically manifests itself.
In the dark streets of Bogota, the rain and the color palette of cool blues and grays matches the tone that is being set the chilling confessions of the young narrators. The young protagonists avoid excessive eye contact much like children who have experienced trauma do James Each narrator only glances momentarily at the screen, as if they are confiding in spectator. For the young girl on the swing, as described in section 2. Caught in a cycle of violence, displaced children become re-victimized in their post-conflict environment not only for discrimination, poverty and exclusion that can accompany displacement but also new forms of violence characteristic of their new surroundings.
A subsequent long shot with a high-angle view again establishes the urban setting that the interviewees occupy, as the camera pans slowly down from a black sky to reveal a dark sea of houses that extends to the horizon. In the midground is an equally dark and deserted street, save for a young child swinging round a lamppost, notably too young to be out unaccompanied at 37 such an hour. A second boy sits on the street corner in the foreground, and as the camera continues to pan downward, bringing the spectator to eye level with the boy, it creates the impression that they are seated next to the character, as a witness and confidant.
The setting of his confession on the curb of this dark street on which he is sitting further emphasizes the loss of their cherished farmland. One small boy narrates his conflict experience while coloring on the floor, as Figure 2. The high-angle shot gives the impression of an adult observer, looking down on the child. The way the camera sways from side to side and slowly pans closer to the subject pictured in the centre of the screen mimics the actions of an older, taller observer leaning in to listen.
The bobbing and slightly unsteady camera of the high-angle view does more than suggest an older, taller witness. The significance of this adult knowledge of financial hardship is one indication that childhood has been violated at the hands of conflict, yet the confession seems strangely out of 38 place as he is in the midst of what should be carefree and imaginative play. But the fact that this character can be seen coloring does more than draw our attention to the tension between childish behavior and an adult sense of reality. Essentially, as Figure 2. The repetition goes further as we are to understand that these characters are pictorial representations of the narrators; the images are doubles for the concealed bodies of the children whose testimonies are given.
The result is a 39 layering of bodies: the hidden indexical body belonging to the voice, the animated slightly-indexical body in its stead, and the inanimate self-portrait created by the animated body. In this case, as Figure 2. Further than taking on little voices and displaying childlike patterns of eye and body movement, the drawings gain indexicality as they display motive and express emotions.
More 40 importantly, they display changing emotions that cannot be portrayed by an inanimate drawing. Though drawing their war-time experiences may be a conscious act by the child-narrators, the projection of emotions on to their drawings may have escaped their consciousness. The psychological concept of Projection, as originally conceptualized by Freud, is a defense mechanism — often unconsciously done — in which subjects attribute their own feelings and motives onto another person. It is a force that attempts to keep painful memories out of the conscious mind. Thus, painful memories are banished to the unconscious.
The changing emotions of the animated characters reveal that the child artists of this documentary have projected their trauma onto the drawings and away from their own bodies. The drawings of the main characters gain an uncanny indexicality as they embody the feelings and motives of the children that are projected onto them. One poignant scene involves one of the eldest narrators explaining the horrors of war experienced as a child soldier. While his tone is remarkably detached, his on-screen double shows intense emotion as he witnesses these violent acts, as can be seen in Figure 2. Webb purports that the act of drawing the nightmare helps children reduce their fears.
Further, graphic depiction and play based dramatization allows displaced children of an armed conflict to process much of the anguish associated with episodes of war Andrade , Just as the landscape of their once peaceful homeland in the interior of Colombia becomes strange and unfamiliar by the marks of the armed conflict and all its players, so too does childhood become an uncanny place as these young victims find themselves launched into adulthood, grown up too fast by the experiences of war. This aesthetic causes a viewing tension as the testimonies reveal how their childhood is in fact interrupted or ruined by the conflict.
The result is a slightly-indexical connection the viewer makes to the body of the interviewee, i. In this way, they actually begin to gain verisimilitude to the real bodies not depicted, and take a step albeit a small one towards a mimetic substitution. Indeed, it favors them. This occurs as the drawings become too real, taking on life-like traits of their human narrators, and most of all embodying the trauma that is projected onto them. As the previous chapter mentioned, the testimonial soundtrack reveals that childhood itself becomes an uncanny place for the young victims or war, one that no longer feels heimliche, and the childlike 45 animation style that becomes increasingly dark as the plot progresses serves to emphasize this point for the intended older audience.
As Hispanist Jon Beasley-Murray writes: As to whether Peronism was a movement of the left or of the right: it was both. And it was neither. On the surface, the film appears to be concerned with the task of unveiling the mystery of Eva through the figure of the fictional narrator Walsh.
Sin embargo, fui tras los secretos de su vida y su muerte. It is through his investigation that the majority of the archival materials appear, largely with photographs and reconstructed newspaper articles which are featured in the recurring image of his investigative journal. Eva stands out from traditional live-action biopics and seems to be on the forefront of a new way of dramatizing the life of historical figures through animation. This is arguably the case for Eva, whose archival elements are consistent throughout the film, but are also inextricably linked to the animated elements, and vice versa.
When animation is functioning as mimetic substitution, the mimesis works to validate history Roe Likewise, Section 3. Section 3. Accordingly, section 3. Or, more appropriately, nearly six decades marking her passing a la inmortalidad as it was broadcasted by Argentine radio stations across the nation. Seoane visually depicts her protagonist in a way that reflects her preoccupation with immortality through doubling up her image on screen. Each additional image is another footprint left by Eva, and through the replication of these same images in film and broader media alike they become infinite traces of her existence.
The tool of photographic image, which is the most salient archival tool in the film, provides another transference of the real Eva despite her passing over sixty years ago. Each new image of Eva that spilled out into the Argentine media 54 and popular culture made it harder to wipe away the stain that she was perceived to be by the military dictatorship in one fell swoop during the ban on Peronism from until under decree It is cast as look-alike, though it remains physically distinct.
The unification of the two bodies by means of one voice results in the strange impression that, although separate beings, they appear to be of one mind. Initially the body accompanying the voice-off is also archival, as depicted in a highlights reel of footage dated from to Their similar appearance and hand gestures in this scene also indicate a double mind-body connection. In Eva, however, the viewer becomes even more entangled in the epistemological contract as a result of the double-Eva tactic in which two bodies share one archival voice.
This motive is especially important for the former First Lady who barely made it to her thirties before succumbing to cervical cancer, and saw the purging of her image not only at the hands of her husband in his attempts to erase much of the traces of modeling and acting career following their marriage, but also through the sixteen-year military ban on Peronism prohibiting the possession of her image and the mention of her very name.
An alarm clock ringing and a melancholic tune suggest that her time is almost up; death for the former First Lady is near. The evident unravelling of her health is symbolically paralleled by the unravelling of her chignon as her hair cascades down over her fatigued shoulders as she reclines in an armchair. The many images act as a reassurance that dying Eva has indeed left her mark, and created a name for herself.
As her long blonde hair is swept up by the wind they share a passionate kiss. In this remembering, however, the unraveling of her hair is not symbolic of her unraveling health and imminent death; rather it is suggestive of her lasting image. Eva will live on, we are to understand through this animated segment. This is the image of Evita that Seoane adopts for the animated figure, often anachronistically depicted with free-flowing hair, most notably in key scenes that correspond to a time when a more authoritarian, chignon-sporting Eva would have been present. Ultimately, the mimetic animation, in presenting multiple versions of Eva, validates the lasting images Eva created of herself, and those that were attributed to her following her death.
In this regard, Seoane reverses the functions of the animated and the archival as proposed by Roe: it is the archival components that serve to validate the animated mythic narrative instead of vice versa. The image of the reconstructed newspaper, archival in nature, posits that what is about to be witnessed is no doubt history. However, the scene that follows makes clear that it is a specific version of history that is being depicted. Pictured at home, a determined Eva gazes into a three-way mirror at the multiple reflections of herself another hint by the filmmaker of her duplicity?
The camera is poised behind her figure, and her image is shown as a reflection in the mirror, or as multiple reflections, 60 tying a white scarf over her loose blonde hair. In this scene, the distinctive white headscarf serves as a symbol of public struggle for Eva, just as it would symbolize the public struggle decades later for the mothers who sought justice for their disappeared children. In other words, wrapped in the white symbolic fabric, the inaugural moment of Peronism becomes her moment.
En route back to the Plaza, she witnesses the success of her purported individual efforts as she gazes out the car window upon the mobilizing masses. However, instead of depicting the rallying workers through animation to match the aesthetic of the rest of the scene, Seoane employs archival images of the mobilizing masses which are projected onto the car window. The archival images are made to visually reflect both literally and symbolically here the fictionalized version of a revolution that Eva purportedly instigated.
Despite the archival assurance, this scene is, quite literally, the stuff that myths are made of. Que no fue solamente levantamiento de obreros organizados, sino de todo un pueblo. Buenos Aires. Amato, Alberto 26 de julio de In purposefully referring to her as Duarte, Rosa points to her illegitimate role that history has come to give her in this story, and likewise signals her role of illegitimacy to the future President at this moment in history as his mere mistress.
Yet Seoane grants Eva a very official role, transforming her into the Pasionaria of the revolution. Specifically, she transforms her into a fetishized substitute for the project of Peronism itself, as the next section explores. Seoane takes the parody one step further as the finger of Evita-God makes contact with the demonstrator, suggesting that in some way they are on the same level. Eva is creator of the pueblo, and she is also the pueblo itself. It is also, simultaneously, the biography of a national project. However, the film presents a specific political view of this national project, as already noted.
It is one of left-wing mythology. Seoane, given the unlimited potential of animation, could have place Eva on the balcony beside Juan. The final image in the credits, featuring the trademark shot of the animated silhouettes of Juan and Eva in their embrace as he once again lets her hair loose, suggests from the start the specific version of Peronism which is about to be recounted.
Ortiz, after Sebreli, notes that Evita by birth was divided into two different people, possessing a dual membership of landownership through her father , and of homelessness through her mother. Yet, unsatisfied with this dual membership, Evita was torn by the desire to be someone else. Argentina, characterized by the same dual membership, was also torn by the same desire This is most notable as the young Eva Duarte spots an animated Evita figure on the platform of the caboose, her reassuring hand reaching out to the frightened young girl as she struggles to catch up and grab a hold of the hand.
The desired contact has been made. Here, it is important to note another symbol in the nightmare scene: the horde of crows that relentlessly pursues the young girl down the railway tracks.
In this sense, her defining 67 moment becomes just as much about what she is running from as it is what she is running towards. The crows appear throughout the film, trailing not only Eva but Walsh as well. Harbingers of death, their symbolic status can be understood as the threat of institutions such as the oligarchy, the military government, and the church. Quite simply, by her own hand Evita evita obscurity. She has achieved her desire to be someone else, to create a lasting image, one that goes beyond her own self and extends to the body of the nation.
No se olvida. Or more accurately, what is being remembered in this film? Despite a long career in journalism and radio, the journalist and writer is no stranger to blending her investigative work in the field of visual arts. In fact, in turning to animation Seoane displays the most notable link to Esa Mujer: substitution.
In turning to animation Eva de la Argentina features a corporal substitution, likewise pointing to the same political context but indicating a different form of repression: the disappearance of bodies. Freud also reasons that the substitute at once acknowledges and disavows what is at threat. Kraniauskas, after Laura Laura Mulvey, notes that the fetish is at once a screen against the traumatic memory as well as a reminder of loss and the substitution The double-Eva tactic becomes an energetic denial not only of the power of death, but also of disappearance.
Translation James Strachey. London: Hogarth and the Institute of Psychoanlysis, The fetish can be understood as a form of suturing, a recreation of what has been lost. So then, does Seoane succeed in suturing the past through her hodgepodge story-telling method of animation and the archival? In short, no. The simulacra of Eva is an unsatisfactory substitute: her character functions as a double in responding to the events of one time period through mechanisms of another time period.
The discussion of suturing a fragmented past in a narrative that blends the animated and the archival to create a cohesive account of history will continue in the next chapter, as we turn 71 to Manuel H. Further, the next chapter will elaborate upon the present discussion of how animation can function as mimetic substitution. In fact, it displays verisimilitude and photorealism to an even greater extent than the mimetically functioning Flash animation in Eva de la Argentina. These two representational strategies in documentary are linked by their practical aim of visually filling archival gaps, yet differ in their primary functions.
Yet Chapter 3 also explored how animation simultaneously functions as mimetic substitution in Eva de la Argentina. Unlike non-mimetic and mimetic substitution, evocative animation does not have the practical function of filling in archival gaps. Rather, the representational limitation evocative animation responds to is the portrayal of certain concepts, feelings, emotions and states of mind that live-action imagery has difficulty representing — regardless of whether or not live-action footage exists Manuel H.
As will be argued here, it is through the animation style that the concept of a haunting is evoked; one in which Franco-era ghosts still linger in the dwelling of 21st-century Spain. Derrida is speaking of the lingering influence of the past on the present; thus, history is at once dead and returned to life. Two classes of these traces of the past that Derrida mentions are particularly relevant in the case of contemporary Spain: memories and the dead.
Spectral memories of the past have been resurging in the last decade of the 20th-century and into the new 74 millennium through voices that are willing to give testimony, after decades of silence, to the events that occurred during Francoist Spain. Likewise, spectres of Francoism have been surfacing throughout Spain through the excavation of mass graves containing remains that have been in a state of unrest for decades, with the first scientific exhumation taking place in the year Guided by historical records, a team of biologists, anthropologists and researchers located and excavated a mass grave finding 13 skeletons.
However, in many senses, freedom was short lived as this group experienced a second bout of repression through a burial of their testimonies, ironically by means of a second offer of amnesty. The Amnesty Law had the aim of forgetting the civil war and moving forward with a clean slate in the new democratic Spain. This changing political atmosphere together with a growing social movement aimed at recuperating historical memory, meant both an unearthing of testimony as well as the excavation of mass graves containing thousands of 77 unidentified war victims.
A cultural movement has been occurring alongside the political and social strides towards the recuperation of memory. Spanish media and cinema are working to document the efforts to exhume the bodies of the mass graves. This is due to the nature of the ghost which it is trying to leave go of. The topos reality differed from those who were summarily executed although many of those discovered in hiding did in fact suffer this fate , yet they are linked by their experience of being buried for years, unnamed and in unnamed places —unbeknownst to many of their closest family and friends.
