Event description

Description

Instituto Cervantes Manchester, in collaboration with the Basque Children Association in the UK, presents a monographic exhibition: Basque children. English exile. The project explores the history of the 4,000 children who were evacuated from Bilbao to the United Kingdom in 1937, on-board the SS Habana.

The exhibition will be opened by Simon Martínez, the son of one of the evacuees from 1937 and General Secretary of the Basque Children Association in the UK, and we are extremely privileged to welcome one of the evacuees to the opening, who will speak about her experience.
The exhibition will be on show at Instituto Cervantes Manchester until 12th November 2018.
