On February 22, eighty years have passed since the death in exile of the poet Antonio Machado. Machado died and is buried, along with his mother who died a few days later, in the village of Collioure, in French Catalonia.
He arrived, at the end of January 1939, fleeing from the Franco regime after the fall of Barcelona and was one of the refugees who arrived in France hundreds of thousands at the end of the Civil War.
From Devuélveme la voz we make a small tribute to him with the testimonies of the witnesses who were in his last days and who work in our archive.
Very interesting article that has just appeared in the journal Segle XX, revista catalana d'història written by Marta Piñol in which she analyzes how cinema has reflected the great Spanish emigration of the sixties to Europe with contemporary films and documentaries to the phenomena, as well as as with later realizations.
In 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed in Paris the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 70 years later, the University of Alicante commemorates this event, during the week of December 10 to 14, with a series of talks and discussions highlighting the presence of former General Director of Unesco Federico Mayor Zaragoza.
In parallel, a film cycle and two exhibitions have been organized. The latter can be seen on the campus of the University of Alicante in San Vicente del Raspeig. In one of them we have exhibited a small sample of our documentary collection.
The Council of Ministers approved the creation of a commission that will be in charge of the acts of commemoration of the Spanish republican exile after the civil war and the establishment of the dictatorship. It is a working group in which various ministries will be integrated.
It is an act of justice before the need to pay tribute to the thousands of Spaniards who fled to various countries, especially France and Mexico
