These photos were taken on 12th May, 2012, at the University of Southampton, at an event to mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival of Spanish child refugees in Southampton. The event was attended by over 200 refugees and their families, as well as Spanish and Basque dignitaries, students and members of the public. It was a day of memories, emotion, history and warmth. There were many documents on display, which had been collected largely by the Basque Children's Association, and on this day, the Association officially handed their archive over to the University for safe-keeping.
These interviews were recorded on 12th May, 2012, at an event marking the 75th anniversary of the arrival in Southampton of child refugees from Bilbao. Interviews were conducted by Pedro Garcia-Guirao during the event. The first interview, with Elena, is in English. The subsequent interviews, with Lloyd and Johnny, are in Spanish. All three students talk about the event and the experience of studying Spanish history and of meeting, in person, individuals who played a role in that history.
