ABSTRACT
One of the main consequences of the republican defeat at the Spanish Civil War and of Franco's victory was the beginning of the exile. There were several paths to exile. A small group of republicans went to the Soviet Union. Many historians have analyzed the Spanish emigration and exile in the Soviet Union with a particular focus in the «war children». Nonetheless, there are still niches in this research area due to its complexity. One of them is the recovery of the memory of the republican victims of the Soviet Forced Labor camps, which is being reassessed by one of the European Union's in memoriam policies. Contributing with new documents, this article sheds light on one path of the exile memory from the perspective of the Stalinist repression and the Gulag, which also counted with a few Spanish republicans. It also mentions the task of the Spanish Federation of Deported and Internal Politicians in order to free those prisoners and the policies of the Spanish Communist Party in the Soviet exile in the peak of its Stalinization.
