Traditionally in Russia the Spanish Civil War was a subject of interest for scientists, journalists, mass readers. In the year of the 80th anniversary from the beginning of that tragic period of Spanish history, one of the most influenced Russian newspapers Kommersant dedicated the significant attention to the Spanish Civil War, made a review of previously unknown documentary facts, recreated the chronology of the events of the war, represented from different perspectives a portrait of Francisco Franco. Also the newspapaper talked about the worldknown writers who were taking part in the Spanish Civil War and who, faced with the horrors of terror and fire, found themselves on different sides of the barricades wich continued to exist in their minds even after they left the war. The theme of historical memory, the fate of the Spanish “children of war” were also covered by the journalists of Kommersant.
