    This week, Julie, Douglas and special guest Goyo return to the sofa to finish the story of the stolen children. Nearly four decades after the death of dictator, Francisco Franco, and the onset of democracy in the Spanish state, hundreds of Basque women robbed of their children and Basque children who have been robbed of their identities seek justice - at least those whose suspicions were strong enough, who were ready to fight for the truth and who had the tools and support to do so. In this episode, Julie and Goyo take turns telling individual stories of the victims who got caught up in this nightmare, some who have found a resolution of sorts and others who are still searching and fighting for justice.
