boys and two girls They were the picture of a successful and beautiful family but what was The Spanish Civil War As a Religious Tragedy happening behind closed doors was anything but Eventually 6 of their 10 boys were affected by schizophrenia The average age of onset is late teensearly 20s so by the time the oldest son exhibited symptoms their family was complete The search for an explanation and a cure became all encompassing The lack of knowledge in the medical and psychological community and what this family endured especially the mother waseartbreaking and infuriating The prevailing
