Commemoration Acts of the Anniversary of the Bombardment of La Garriga
The Spanish War has forever marked the history of our land. A war born of a fascist coup, which ended with the most progressive government in Europe at the time, which made hundreds of thousands of people flee into exile and killed many others.
But this conflict also showed and has left for the memory and study some of the most admirable examples of struggle in our history.
The thousands of people who, from the beginning, volunteered to go to the war front as militiamen, to defend the Republic. Or the thousands who came from all corners of the world to fight against fascism, in a war in a distant country that they knew was also their war: the International Brigades.
As every year and since 2005, La Garriga commemorates the anniversary of the fascist bombardment of the town on January 29, 1939 with a program of events that wants to connect what happened and what is still happening around the world today.
And precisely, Garriga played a role of great importance and little known in the history of the International Brigades. For this reason, the guiding thread of this year's events revolves around these people who, in an example of solidarity, fraternity, commitment and sacrifice unique in the world, also passed through the town, to defend freedoms and ideals that, then, they were already almost lost in the hands of fascism.
Do not miss any act!
