Then Paqui has explained us the exam. She has said that 25 people on the class had done the question A and only two students had done the question D, Paqui has said that in her opinion the easiest one was the question C because it was really short and explicit. After it she has collected the exams and the rests of the notebooks. She has also remembered that the make up exam will be on next Monday.
After this, Paqui has said that we have two options to do in class:
- Continue with Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany.
- Watching a documentary about some Spanish survivors of the WW2.
We obviously have chosen to watch the documentary, but Paqui has had some problems with the projector, so Paloma and Fernandito has looked for an Informatics teacher, while we were waiting for him, Gonzalo has arrived from the doctor. Then we have started watching the video.
This video was about Mauthause a concentration camp in Austria. On this camp 140,000 people dead 7,000 of this dead were Spanish people only 2,100 people survived. This camp was freed on the 5th of May 1945, and the war ended on the 8th May.
On the video there are 8 men talking about their experience on the camp, 6 of the men have already died. They said that when the Spanish Civil War ended and they had to flee to France, Franco said that there weren't Spanish people out of Spain, so when France was invaded they were sending to Mauthause. When they arrived to Mauthause the commander of the camp Frank Ziereis ordered to some musicians play to the new prisoners Goodbye to life from Zoca’s opera. They also talk about the kapos; they were prisoners in charge of other prisoners.
I think the video was very interesting, we have to know what happened on the past to do the things better on the future. But on the other hand seeing videos like this make me feel so powerless, seeing what happened and the people couldn't did nothing to solve it, because if you thought different you were killed, but now what we have to do is learn of the mistakes of the past, in this way don't do it again.
