Tal som Socialdemokraternas partiledare Olof Palme höll på partikongressen den 28 september 1975.
"Fascisterna i Europa forsokte med vaId kväva socialdemokratin.
Ty vad var ett farligare hot mot diktaturen än en rörelse
som samlade folkets breda lager Kring framstegets idéer.
Nar nazismen gick segrande fram fick otaliga socialdemokrater
offra sina liv, ga i koncentrationsläger eller i landsflykt därfor
att de inte ville överge sin demokratiska övertygelse, de
kom sedan tillbaka och byggde upp sina länder.
Det fantastiska är att detta fortsätter, att dessa satans mordare
far halla pa som det sker.
För 1930-talets generation av ungdomsklubbar var inbördeskriget
i Spanien en helt dominerande upplevelse, som skapade
deras bild av världen och mycket av deras politiska engagemang.
Spanienkriget hade för dem ungefär samma betydelse
som Vietnamkriget hade for ungdomen pa 1960-talet.
Detta var alltså for 40 är sedan. Nu närmar sig denna regim
sitt fall. AlIa vet vad som kommer att sägas när den väl fallit:
I den djupaste skarn och förnedring tog fascismen med väld
makten i Spanien i slutet av 1930-talet. I närmare 40 ar har
den pinat det spanska folket. Den kommer att falla också i den
djupaste skarn och förnedring, och historiens dom kommer att
bli ohyggligt hard over Francos fascistregim. Detta vet vi, men
ända bestar den ännu idag."

ENGLISH TRANSLATION
Speech by Olof Palme, September 28, 1975
'The fascists in Europe tried to suppress Social Democracy by violence. For what could be a more dangerous threat to dictatorship than a movement which rallied broad masses of people around the ideas of progress? When Nazism marched victoriously forth, countless Social Democrats had to sacrifice their lives, were put into concentration camps or in exile because they refused to abandon their democratic convictions.
Later they returned and built up their countries. The fantastic thing is that all this continues, that these satanic murderers are able to go on as they are.
For the youth club members of the 1930s generation,
 the Civil War in Spain was an utterly predominent experience, which shaped their picture of the world and stimulated a great deal of their political commitment. The Civil War had for them just about the same significance as the Vietnam war had for the youth of the 1960s.
This, mind you, was 40 years ago. Now this regime is approaching its downfall. Everyone knows what is going to be said when it has fallen: in the utmost shame and humiliation fascism took over the power in Spain at the end of the 1930s. For nearly
 40 years it has plagued the Spanish people. It is 
also going to fall in the utmost shame and humiliation, and the judgment of history is going to be mercilessly harsh on Franco's fascist regime. This we know, yet
 it still exists today."
