In May 1937 4000 children were evacuated from Bilbao. These ‘niños’ were cared for by volunteers in places across the UK, including Cambridge. Through words and music, Rob Garcia (the son of a niño) and Paul McNamara will tell the story of the ‘Basque children’.
The photograph shows Fausto Garcia (father of Rob) with older brother Teo while refugees in one of the Basque Children Refugee ‘colonies’ circa 1937. It is reproduced here with kind permission of R. Garcia.
