Courage Today Hugs Tomorrow

25 of April of 2018 - 18h00
Aljube Museum Auditorium

Women who suffered the statue torture and sleep deprivation, but above all the torture of being deprived of their freedom. Women who were grandmothers, mothers, daughters, wives, girlfriends, lovers, companions, comrades. Women who are not historical figures inside a dusty book, but who actually existed, some still even pass us by on the street, keeping hard memories in their hearts.

Courage today, hugs tomorrow is a testimony composed of interviews conducted in direct speech, which exposes the personal side of the inhumane experiences lived by these women. So that memory remains.
