Imagine that Hitler had not made an expansionist policy, which had been limited to domestic politics (anti-communist and racist). With the emergence of the USSR, the Western powers would have ended up giving the go-traditionalist dictatorship that peace, maintaining diplomatic relations, business, etc. For its part, the Nazi dictatorship have had several decades (say 40 years of dictatorship) to remove or modify the darkest of his term, those related to racism. Subsequently, a "modelic" transition to democracy, have given way to a democratic Germany carried by the same families during the dictatorship.

This fiction, largely could identify the Franco era, if not for the rampant racism of Nazism.

But what if Spain had also been a manifestly racist policy, causing a local holocaust? This is the thesis of the novel, "Tempesta", in which, as in a puzzle of 800 pages, you get a new image of the civil war. Franco camouflaged racist killings in a left-right conflict. And the subsequent evolution of the system towards a soft dictatorship, and later a democracy under supervision by the dictatorship elites, just hide it definetively. Definetively?
