On 1 April 1939, the Spanish Civil War ended when Franco’s troops entered Madrid. Fearing the blooding repression that was looming, many republicans fled the country but others couldn’t or didn’t want to. This was the case of the thirteen girls, all under legal age, who are the main characters in this true story. They were shot on 5 August 1939 against the walls of the Almudena cemetery in Madrid.
