Storytelling adventure: finding a safe home
This event for families and children under 5s accompanies our joint exhibition at Islington Museum with the Association for the Basque Children of the UK on 15 June - 16 July.
The Spanish Civil War broke out in 1936. A far-right military coup against the elected government in Spain led to a brutal conflict. With support from Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy the rebels targeted civilians. Thousands fled bombing raids on the cities of northern Spain. In 1937 the Republic asked the world to take refugee children.
Join Storyteller Dani as she takes you on an imaginative adventure to discover the stories of Basque Children escaping the Spanish Civil War. Exploring the stories of refugees with under 5’s.
