1937 Audio tour
See full details
North Stoneham camp for Basque children was established by the Basque children’s committee in 1937 to care for the children of Basque refugees from the Spanish Civil War. Over 3,000 children were taken to the camp in May 1937, as a temporary measure until they had found a host family. The camp closed down in September of that year.
As a Spanish citizen, I feel that the Civil War is not only a tremendous tragedy and a stain on our history, but has had an impact on Spain’s culture, politics and ideology to this day.
