Franco's Legacy

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports that more than a quarter century after the death of dictator Francisco Franco, Spaniards are just now beginning to confront the ghosts of nearly four decades of fascist rule. In the last several months, there's been a flurry of books and exhibits lifting the veil from the Franco era.
