Spain: Stolen babies — State scandal

Arte: Tues­day 28 Feb­ru­ary at 11.45pm

From the ear­ly days of Fran­co’s dic­ta­tor­ship, from the 1930s until the ear­ly 1980s, Spain set up a traf­fic in stolen babies from Repub­li­can fam­i­lies to sell them to Fran­co’s fam­i­lies with the active sup­port of the Catholic Church. Mar­got Lit­ten’s doc­u­men­tary “Stolen Babies, the Catholic Church and Fran­co” attempts to shed light on this scan­dal by giv­ing voice to vic­tims, landown­ers and church lead­ers. In half a cen­tu­ry, some 300,000 new­born babies were stolen from their moth­ers and sold to adop­tive par­ents. The rea­son: their polit­i­cal ideas. This traf­fick­ing con­tin­ued after Fran­co’s death until 1987, when a law was passed tight­en­ing con­trols on adop­tion. How­ev­er, even today, the omer­ta reigns, but many vic­tims still hope to find their real families.

Espagne: bébés volés – Scan­dale d’État

Arte: Mar­di 28 févri­er à 23h45

Dès les pre­mières heures de la dic­tature de Fran­co, des années 1930 jusqu’au début des années 1980, l’Es­pagne a mis en place un traf­ic de vol de bébés à des familles répub­li­caines pour les reven­dre à des familles fran­quistes avec le sou­tien act­if de l’Eglise catholique. Le doc­u­men­taire de Mar­got Lit­ten “Les bébés volés, l’Eglise catholique et Fran­co” tente de faire la lumière sur ce scan­dale en don­nant la parole à des vic­times, des fon­cionnaires et des respon­s­ables d’Eglise. En un demi-siè­cie, quelque 300’000 nou­veau-nés auraient été volés à leur mère, puis ven­dus à des par­ents adop­tifs. En cause: leurs idées poli­tiques. Ce traf­ic a con­tin­ué après la mort de Fran­co jusqu’en 1987 et l’adop­tion d’une loi ren­forçant le con­trôle de l’adop­tion. Pour­tant, aujour­d’hui encore l’omer­ta règne, mais de nom­breuses vic­times gar­dent l’e­spoir de retrou­ver leur véri­ta­ble famille.
