The Technical Commission of Historical Memory will meet next June 13 to analyze and approve, if appropriate, the report that a special committee has prepared on the proposed catalog of Franco’s symbols, streets, monuments and mentions in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
At the last meeting of the commission, on March 16, it was agreed, before informing the Ministry of Education about the catalog proposal, to entrust three of its members to study the content of this 3,000-page document that the General Directorate of Heritage had commissioned the University of La Laguna.
This committee is made up of the representative of the Canary Island Federation (Fecai) in the Commission and vice-president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Berta Pérez; the president of the Association for the Recovery of the Historical Memory of Tenerife, Mercedes Pérez, and the director of the Genetics Laboratory of the Institute of Legal Medicine (IML) of Las Palmas, Juan José Pestano.
In the meeting scheduled for June 13, the Government of the Canary Islands indicates in a note, all the people who are part of the commission will be able to make the observations they deem appropriate and expose their objections to the text of the catalog proposal.
This is written by the research team made up of Professor of Art History María Isabel Navarro and doctors Yolanda Peralta and Ricardo Guerra.
As on March 16, the next session of the Historical Memory Commission will also be attended by two representatives of the Santa Cruz City Council, which requested to attend.
