Franco's Justice

Three photographs of bereted victims of "Franco's Justice". Of course, 'Franco' and 'Justice' don't combine very well. The 'Justice' here could be adequately described as 'revenge', humiliation, torture, murder and, in the cases of these photographs: slave labour. 
Paul Preston's 'The Spanish Holocaust' is one of the more detailed works on the subject and the paper 'Forced Labour in Franco's Spain: Workforce Supply, Profits and Productivity' can be downloaded here.
The pictures (top and bottom) depict "Red" prisoners performing forced labour on the Canary Islands, the centre photo the Canal BDST Prisoners near Sevilla.
