Description

The story of an extraordinary evacuation, this book narrates the lives and destinies of the Spanish children exiled to England during the Spanish Civil War and how they saw what was supposed to have been a three-month exile turn into the better part of their lives. In 1937, a transatlantic ship carrying 4,000 Spanish children docked in England, the greatest contingent of refugees to ever arrive in that country and the first to ever be comprised solely of children. The Basque children had been sent to escape the horrors of the Spanish Civil War a mere month after the bombing of Guernica. With the small Basque town's suffering still fresh in their minds, the British government reluctantly agreed to the transfer of the children to England under the condition that no public funds ever be used for their aid. The parents who placed their children onboard hoped their exile would be brief, but it wasn't. Although the majority of them eventually reunited with their families, some 250 never returned because many of them no longer had anything or anyone waiting for them. "La historia de una evacuacion extraordinaria, este libro narra las vidas y los destinos de los ninos espanoles exiliados a Inglaterra durante la Guerra Civil Espanola y como vieron que lo que se suponia que fuera un exilio de tres meses se prolongo en lo mejor de sus vidas. En 1937, un transatlantico con 4.000 ninos espanoles a bordo atraco en Inglaterra, el mayor contingente de refugiados llegado a ese pais y el primero integrado unicamente por ninos. Los ninos vascos habian sido enviados para escapar de los horrores de la Guerra Civil Espanola solo un mes despues del bombardeo de Guernica. Con el sufrimiento de la pequena poblacion vasca todavia vivo en la imaginacion, el gobierno britanico autorizo a reganadientes el traslado de los ninos a Inglaterra con la condicion de que no dispondrian de ningun fondo publico para ayudarles. Los padres que colocaron a sus hijos abordo esperaban que su exilio fuese breve, pero no lo fue. Aunque la mayoria de ellos se reunieron con sus familias, unos 250 no regresaron pues muchos de ellos ya no tenian nada ni nadie esperandolos. "show more
