His family moved to France in the wake of the Spanish Civil War, then to The Hague, where his father José María Semprún Gurrea (1893–1966) was a diplomat in the mission of the Spanish Republic in the Netherlands up to the beginning of 1939. After the Netherlands officially recognized the Franco government, the family returned as refugees to France, where Jorge Semprún enrolled at the Lycée Henri IV and later the Sorbonne. During the Nazi occupation of France, Semprún joined the Communist resistance group Francs-Tireurs et Partisans. In 1943 he was arrested by the Gestapo and deported to the Buchenwald concentration camp.

In 1945 he returned to France and became an active member in the exiled Communist Party of Spain (PCE). From 1953 to 1962, he was an important organizer of the PCE clandestine activities in Spain, using the pseudonym of Federico Sánchez . He entered the party's politburo (Comité ejecutivo) in 1956. But he was expelled in 1964 because of "differences regarding the party line," at which point he focused on his writing career.

From 1988 to 1991 he served as Culture Minister of Spain. He was a screenwriter for two successive films by the Greek director, Costa-Gavras, dealing with the theme of persecution by governments, Z (1969) and The Confession (1970). For his work on Z, he won the Oscar for Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium. In 1996, he became the first non-Frenchman elected to the Académie Goncourt, which awards an annual literary prize.

The most famous picture of Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) also is showed in this movie.

Robert Capa's 'Muerte de un Miliciano' AKA 'Falling Soldier'
[Image: 232224-Laveu4bis.jpg]

In 1936, he became known across the globe for a photo (known as the "Falling Soldier" photo) presumably taken in Cerro Muriano on the Cordoba Front of a Loyalist Militiaman who allegedly had just been shot and was in the act of falling to his death.

There has been a long controversy about the authenticity of this photograph. A Spanish historian identified the dead soldier as Federico Borrell García, from Alcoi (Alicante). This identification has been disputed. In 2003 the Spanish newspaper El Periodico claimed the photo was taken near the town of Espejo, at 10 kilometres from Cerro Muriano, and that the photo was staged. In 2009, a Spanish professor published a book titled Shadows of Photography, in which he alleged that the photograph could not have been taken where, when or how Capa and his backers have alleged

Yves Montand is trying to remember all the months he was tortured by Police (he is talking with reporters) in past. The scene begins with the Tratra 2-603 but then he says

Skoda 1000 MB left, Skoda Octavia right. Original footage from Prague 1968, I think.
