Remembering the Retirada

by on April 14, 2012

Hello everyone!

My project is a separate blog, to which I’ll be adding content  over the next week or two. Feel free to peruse and comment, and I’ll present on what I have so far in class next week.

The link: http://rememberingretirada.wordpress.com/

Here are a few of the images I’ll discuss:

One of the most iconic images of the border crossing, February 1939. These refugees fled Barcelona as Franco's army approached, and after entering France were herded into concentration camps.

The camp of Argelès-sur-Mer, one of the largest concentration camps in France. Situated on the beach, when the refugees arrived there were no barracks or facilities, just sand and barbed wire. You might be able to see men raising a fist in defiance, the salute of the Spanish Republic.
