Conference and Memorial at San Pedro de Cardena, 4th to 6th November, 2011
Nacho Eli Garcia, historian and expert on San Pedro de Cardena prison, where International Brigaders were held (He is also the creator of the excellent blog “The Jaily News”), has just announced that over the weekend of November 4th to 6th an International conference, exhibition and memorialisation will be held at the former prison of San Pedro de Cardeña. This event is the weekend after the end of the week-long series of events commemorating the creation of the International Brigades (Madrid and Barcelona, Oct. 22-29). A group of individuals will be staying on after the end of this trip to visit Teruel with me and to follow the route of the Great Retreats from October 30th to November 4th. We will then drive to San Pedro de Cardeña for this event via Barcelona if others wish to attend. If anyone wishes to join the tour or to be picked up in Barcelona on the morning of Friday November 4th and return in the afternoon of Monday November 7th then please contact me as soon as possible as there are only a few seats still available. For further information if you wish to make your own way there, please contact Nacho on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
