Project niƱos (Cold War in Sunny Spain) unveils an unknown chapter of the Cold War: the mass interrogation programme the CIA carried out on Spaniards returning to their country from the USSR in the late 1950s. These Spanish nationals had been sent to the USSR in 1937 as children to protect them from the Spanish Civil War and ended up settling there and working in the Soviet strategic industries.
The KGB was not out of the game either; they took advantage of this migration of humans to Spain to infiltrate some of their agents.
