Recollections of the Basque Childrens Camp

Paper Number: 
EP03
Summary: 
RECOLLECTIONS OF THE BASQUE CHILDRENS CAMP AT NORTH STONEHAM EASTLEIGH. THIS PAPER, ON MY ARRIVAL AND STAY AT THE NORTH STONEHAM CAMP, HAS BEEN WRITTEN FIFTY YEARS AFTER THE EVENT. I HAVE PREPARED, AT VARIOUS TIM ES, INFORMATION AND OBSERVATIONS OF SPEC IFIC ASPECTS OF THE LIFE IN THE CAMP AND OF THE VOYAGE FROM BILBAO, BUT NEVER BEFORE FROM BEGINNING TO END, IN ONE PAPER. I HAVE WRITTEN, BESIDES THE EVENTS IN THE CAMP, HOW WE ARRIVED THERE, BECAUSE IT ADDS TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHILDREN'S EMOTIONAL BACKGROUND. THE RECOLLECTIONS ARE PERSONAL. THEY STILL REMAIN VIVID IN MY MEMORY. I LEFT THE CAMP AT THE END OF JULY, 1937. AND AM, THEREFORE, UNABLE TO SAY ANYTHING OF WHAT HAPPENED AFTER MY DEPARTURE AND THE CLOSING OF THE CAMP AROUND THE SECOND WEEK OF SEPTEMBER^ 193 7.
