Summary
This is the story of how children escaping the Spanish Civil War were given a home in Wales. The year was 1937 and the forces of General Franco were advancing on the Basque city of Bilbao. A few hundred of the children evacuated from the city found a welcome in Wales where they were given shelter in Swansea, Old Colwyn, Caerleon and Carmarthenshire. At a time when the ordinary people of Wales were themselves undergoing terrible deprivation there was a tidal wave of giving to keep these children housed, fed and nurtured. Most of the children eventually returned to Spain but for some their exile stretched to a lifetime
