Representatives of the Association of descendants of Spanish exile submitted a complaint to the Ministry of education by the Spanish biographical dictionary produced by the Royal Academy of history (RAH). They include Carmen Negrin (granddaughter of Juan Negrin), angel Vinas (historian), Carlos Jimenez Villarejo (jurist), Mirta Nunez Diaz-Balart (researcher of repression) and many relatives of victims of the Francoist repression and democratic memory associations. In a letter sent to the Minister of education, angel Gabilondo, the Association of descendants of the Spanish exile shows his astonishment that the electronic publication of the Spanish biographical dictionary, funded with a grant from this Ministry and also with a help of the Plan Avanza in the Ministry of industry, tourism and trade, contains several biographies related to dictator Francisco Franco and characters of recent history as don Manuel Azana, don Juan Negrin, don Francisco Largo Caballero, etc. which, in his view, does not correspond to the historical facts, in an attempt to rewrite recent history..
