Castuera III (Concentration Camp), Badajoz. (2016)
From 1939 to 1940, hundreds of prisoners were eliminated in the countryside or ‘taken for a walk’ and shot by Falangist groups of the area. Among the early victims was José González Barrero, mayor of Zafra, who was picked up in the camp by Falangists and disappeared between 26 and 29 April 1939. The Concentration Camp of Castuera fulfilled the functions of classification, repression and selective annihilation.
