Basque Children in Yorkshire in 1937

The Peace Museum in Bradford is hosting an exhibition produced by the Basque Children of ’37 Association UK which tells the story of child refugees from the Spanish Civil War who were evacuated and brought to Britain.  From 5.30PM-8PM on Thursday 18th February the Museum will open for a special evening event. The evening will involve an opportunity to view the exhibition, followed by a screening of ‘The Guernica Children’ a film produced in association with the BC’37A. The evening will end with an informal Q/A session with Carmen Kilner of the Basque Association, and Adrian Bell, author of ‘Only for Three Months: The Basque Children in Exile’. The aim of the evening is to discover the often untold story of these children and to discuss the parallels with modern refugee crises.  All welcome. Please RSVP to if you wish to attend. Entrance is free.  The exhibition will also be showing during normal museum hours.
