Review br en ne is , s ara j. Spaniards in Mauthausen: Representations of a Nazi Concentration Camp. U of Toronto P, 2018. 384 pp. The key is not in the title, which promises a history of Spaniards in Mauthausen, but rather in the subtitle, in line with similar comprehensive works such as those by Noe¨l Valis (2007 ) and Mari Paz Balibrea (2017 ). It is thus a historical account of the representations, not a historical work in the traditional sense. Our author stresses the importance of “integral history,” which seems to mean the amalgam of historical fact with what has passed into legend. Roig and Pike fail to qualify as integrative historians: “Neither considers memoirs or ﬁctional accounts by Spanish survivors as primary sources. [Regarding memoirs, the present writer denies the charge.] Both their texts leave the historical narrative of Spaniards in the past, not looking beyond the memories of survivors for their chronicles. . . . I constitute the archive by forging links between dispersed documents” (33 ). Survivors’ accounts are indeed primary, and a solution in bibliographies could be a combined section headed “Other Primary (Survivors’ Memoirs) and Secondary Sources,” afﬁxing asterisks to the memoirs.
