29jan11:30 am12:30 pmOxfordshire and the Spanish Civil War 1936 – 1939

Event Details

This fascinating talk tells the story of how the people of Oxfordshire responded to the Spanish Civil War. More than thirty went to Spain to fight or as medics, whilst thousands more joined in fundraising campaigns at home. Others welcomed and housed hundreds of Basque refugees who had fled to Britain to escape the fighting. These events accompanied profound political changes, in Oxford in particular, and the uniting of ‘town’ and ‘gown’ in a popular front never seen before in the city. Lecture ticket £6.
