More than 480 terrorist attacks, 131 victims, 89 murdered by ETA, 7 by Autonomous Groups (ETA faction), 432 injured, about 200 bombing attacks, 57 bombs defused. ETA kidnapped 22 people, killing 4 of them. There were other 13 kidnap attempts, several attacks against political headquarters and public buildings, 2 assaults to police barracks, more than 250 arson attacks and over 100 bomb threats.
How is it possible that nobody has ever told this story before?
Direct witnesses of the terrorist attacks which took place in the Basque Country and throughout Spain during the year 1980 give an account of their memories and opinions.
The TV footage, the news in the press and the voices of the radio make us get immersed in the brutality of those days, which, with hindsight, seems incredible to have ever happened.
