Pedro Urraca Rendueles, nicknamed “hunter of the red”, was a Francoist policeman, agent E-8001 of the Gestapo and collaborator of the Vichy Regime. He was one of the figures who led the persecution and harassment of numerous exiled Spanish Republicans during the Nazi occupation. Among others, he was responsible for the arrest of Lluís Companys, president of the Catalan Government, as well as the minister Joan Peiró and the socialist journalists Julián Zugazagoitia and Francesc Cruz Salido, all of them executed by the Francoist authorities.
Urraca. Hunter of the Red is also the chronicle of a poisoned heritage told through the critical viewpoint of Pedro Urraca’s granddaughter, Loreto, who with dignity and humility condemns and distances herself from her grandfather.
