The article analyzes two central debates in studies of rebel/francoist violence during the Spanish Civil War and the Franco dictatorship: the conceptual tensions between extermination and the forced conversion program within the framework of the perpetrators’ annihilating intentions; and the debate regarding the effects of Francoist eugenics in constructing the "enemy" and planning violence. The author reflects on different theoretical frameworks applied in Spain: genocide, extermination, political cleansing, etc.; and warns of the dangers of certain conceptual excesses.
