Oh my god. I almost didn’t get through this.
With sequential art and prose, Carlos Giménez portrays life in orphanages during the Spanish Civil War in the middle of the 20th century.
It is heartbreaking. And horrifying.
The picture Giménez paints shows how these children experienced life. The awful conditions they experienced.
Being “taken care” of by people spouting prayers and hymns.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Worth reading, as difficult as it is to get through.
