If Franco was German he would have been in the NSDAP along with all his fascist chums.
Nonsense. During the WWII Franco did not handle even a single Jew to Hitler, what is more after diplomatic intervention he freed 400 Jews from German concentration camp, granted citizenship to 350.000 Jews expelled from Spain in middle ages. Jewish institute Yad Vashem awarded him a special title of "gentile among the nations".
Beside of that Franco was from respected family and he would not spend time in company of bandits from social bottom like Hitler. Your theory is ridiculous.
In the Spanish Civil War ( SCW) atrocities were committed by both sides but more so by the Nationalists and Franco aided by Nazi Germany. Before, during and after the war, Franco was responsible for a disproportionate amount of executions.
Germans helped him before WWII (so were Brits), so your association is misleading. From the Spanish point of view this was good deal, less Spanish blood and money were sacrificed. What could you say about western countries allied with Soviet butchers when they knew very well the nature of their regime?
After the war Franco needed to punish all those communist criminals, otherwise they would organize their terrorist band once again. He did a great job.
Overwhelming majority fought for the Republicans.
Yes. However they were Soviet financed fanatical communist bandits that committed various crimes on civilians. Nothing to be proud from Polish perspective. Just look at this comical flag "CCCP Polonia" posted above. We in Poland should be glad to Franco and his soldiers that they were killing them. The same people after WWII chased AK members.
When did this happen ? After Franco died.
They did the reform in 1957.
