    My historical legacy is similar to the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland insofar as it was a fight against fascist oppressors in Spain, whom ultimately killed my relatives, whom heroically fought. The ultimate survivor of this story is my uncle whom refuses to commercialise the story and only writes academic books. I personally would make a historically valid and solemn portrayal of the events in a movie, and would express them in a manner which would memorialise the legacy in an accurate manner, with all its historical and political complexity. The story of the Seisdedos, the Anarchists of Casas Viejas, whom were the first fighters against Franco, and the start of the Spanish Revolution in 1933, which incidentally coincided with Hitler's accession to power in Germany, with the subsequent Spanish Civil War as the precursor to World War 2, with the Fascist Axis in a co-ordinated campaign against the Allies. In terms of political truth, the Anarchists of Casas Viejas, the CNT, the Spanish Republic as a sum total, including Socialists and Communists, represented the very antithesis to Fascism as played out in the Spanish Civil War from 1936 to 1939. In terms of any constructive criticism I could offer fellow fighting survivors of fascism in Europe is a more solemn and awe-inspiring portrayal of the events of the Warsaw Ghetto. I believe it gives a more valid portrayal of a story of ultimate survival and heroism. A movie like "Libertarias" in relation to my relatives is the type of style of portrayal which I would prefer in the context of giving an emotional connection to such analogous stories. It allows the story on small or big screen to echo through the ages.
