How Wales Gave Shelter to Refugee Children from the Basque Country during the Spanish Civil War
Distributed for University of Wales Press
This book tells the little-known story of the Basque children who sought refuge in Wales during the Spanish Civil War. In 1937, nearly four thousand children embarked from Bilbao for Southampton, from where they were dispersed to camps throughout Britain—including four in Wales. Fleeing Franco, the first book to tell this story, features newly conducted interviews with surviving refugees and offers a new perspective on the effects of the Spanish Civil War.
