Centre for the Contemporary History of Catalonia
The Centre for the Contemporary History of Catalonia (CHCC) is intended to collect documents about the contemporary history of Catalonia, promote research and popularise the subject. Along these lines, the CHCC promotes and, in some cases, directs, studies and research work, as well as writing down the memoires of people who have experiences of the Civil War, the post-war period, the fight against Francoism and exile.
