On 23 March 1937, a warship of the insurgent fleet fighting against the Republic shelled the city of Castelló. According to the official sources, there were 18 deaths and several wounded among the civilian population, besides significant psychological and material damage. Nearly a year later, in the early morning of 6 March 1938, the same ship was torpedoed and sunk by one from the Republican fleet off Palos cape and about 800 people died. Research by Juan Jarque has shown there were 19 deaths in Castelló from the shelling, nine of whom were Romany people and three of them members of the author’s close family. Although his main aim was to put faces to those who attacked a defenceless population, his research took a radical turn as he was suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, and he took pity on his family's executioners when he found that 765 out of the 1,200-strong ship’s crew, from the Balearic Islands, had died. Due to the high number of deaths and the fact that some of them were as young as 13, Juan Jarque added new objectives to his research. At first, he intended to end the silence surrounding the defeated, but, in the end, he concluded that even the victors were victims. Nothing and nobody can change what happened. However, it is possible to appeal to people’s sensitivity and good manners to commemorate and analyse the tragic episodes of the Civil War to help ensure that it will never happen again.
