Columbus Day arrives and while in Spain the Army parades down the street, in Latin America they knock down statues of Christopher Columbus. Hispanic Heritage Day is celebrated on October 12 because the beginning of the Conquest of America is set on that day. Conquest. This word is used more and more, but Spaniards have always said ‘Discovery’, without giving much importance to what that word hides.
There is a lot of noise these days about hispanidad, the conquest, the discovery, the liberation or the colonialism. To discuss this issue, we have sought the judgment and serenity of Marco Schwartz, a Colombian journalist with a long history in Spain who has recently directed a newspaper in Barranquilla, Colombia.
