The head of Historical Heritage has explained that "these are 14 documents intervened in the framework of Operation Index. Their dates are between June 1938 and July 1947. In this we can find trades in which payments are communicated to widows of soldiers dead on the front, licenses to soldiers, information from military hospitals or requests for information on the political-social behavior of a neighbor. "
Specifically, yesterday 5 books, 27 files and 38 documents of ecclesiastical and municipal type were delivered, the vast majority produced at the end of the Spanish Civil War, which have gone, in addition to the Municipal Archive of Mazarrón, to the Holy Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Cartagena and the municipalities of Totana, Alcantarilla, Jumilla, Moratalla, San Javier and Yecla.
Ginés Campillo has congratulated the Civil Guard for their work and their great research work for the recovery of Historical Heritage because "it is fair that these documents can be consulted and access to all the mazarroneros and not just a few through an illegal activity, "he said.
The mayor has also highlighted "the peculiarity of what concerns the political-social behavior of a neighbor and that helps us to know our past so that it does not happen again. A recovery of historical memory that should help us prevent someone something that happened in the civil conflict as stated in the document but also happens in democracy and we must not allow it to be marked by its political condition.
