AbstractIn this chapter we examine the biography of the prison of Carabnachel: including not just its birth, life and death, but also its afterlife. The prison of Carabanchel has been one of the most monumental and recognizable symbols of repression in Spain from its construction in 1940 until its destruction in 2008. Even today, it looms large in the imagination of many Spaniards as the quintessential space of punishment in the recent history of the country, although its meanings and functions have changed over time. The short but complex history (and post-history) of Carabanchel makes the prison a multifaceted and often contradictory site. It has been a place of political repression and resistance, a place of memory and oblivion, and of abjection and heroism.
