Remember Me story, based on real events, begins in Spain in 1937 mired in civil war. Three brothers - Marco, Isabel and Ana - are embarked by their parents on a ship bound for Mexico. "The civil war took place just eighty years ago," the historian, who lives with his wife and two children in Madrid, tells People en Español. "There was great suffering from those who sometimes have the least voice, which are children."

Escobar says that after the novel was finished, he was racking his brains to find the right title. Until on a beach vacation he asked his wife what a mother would say to her son if she knew she would never see him again. "Remember me," he replied, and there the 48-year-old author found what he was looking for.


This fast-paced and moving novel portrays the deep pain that separation causes in parents and children, as well as the fears and uncertainties of children leaving for an unknown destination, where they will also have new experiences such as love and love. they will adapt to a new country. "[The novel is] also a tribute to so many refugees who had to be raised in Mexico," says the author.


Escobar points out that today "we are living a moment very similar" to that of the book. "We see Syrian refugees in Europe, Venezuelans escaping a terrible reality," says the writer, who has been translated into 19 languages ​​and who, before winning literature, worked as a bricklayer, with leprosy patients and doing surveys.

So it is against some very booming measures. "We put up walls. We feel fear, fear of people who come from outside, "he highlights. "Closing the doors to defenseless children, to people who are fleeing sometimes from conflict, sometimes from poverty, is still an inhuman act."
