Fascism/Falangismo and Their Legacies in Spain, Italy and Germany: Home


"Dictators do not spontaneously ascend to power in any given country. Rather, their rise is the result of political, economic, and social conditions within and outside of their nations. Long after the dictators die, their legacies often haunt the nation’s citizens for decades. Spanish, German, and Italian citizens continue to study Francisco Franco’s, Adolf Hitler’s and Benito Mussolini’s dictatorships—through both historical studies and artistic expression—in an effort to understand their dictators and their own nations’ pasts, presents, and futures."   (Dr. Christine  Blackshaw)

As seen below, the consequences of the Great War (1914-1918) had a major impact on the map of Europe.
