“Since we were children, we knew that there was a cardboard box in Amama’s (grandma’s) room full of letters.  Some years ago, I digitalized them and shared them with my aunts and uncles, because paper doesn’t last forever.  The desire to do something with them came later.  I showed the material to Xabier Irujo and he encouraged me to continue, by then I had already started writing something….” That is how Benan Oregi talks about the beginning of this book that introduces his grandfather, the nationalist councilor in Soraluze, Gipuzkoa, Benantzio Iñurrieta, and the entire repressed generation after the civil war of 1936.
