Since the exhumation began last week, the remains of 14 of the 17 women have been discovered at the cemetery in the southwestern town of Gerena, said 25-year-old Lucia Socam, whose great-aunt Granada Hidalgo was among one of the victims.
The women, dubbed the ’17 roses’, were rounded up and shot by General Francisco Franco’s forces in 1937 for being relatives of people on the opposing Republican side.
