Memories and paths of exile

ROUTE OF EXILE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND ADULTS


The route lasts two days. The first day, which starts with a tour of MUME, takes us from La Jonquera to Argelès, a Republican refugee camp and also cemetery of many of them, to reach Elne Swiss Maternity Hospital, an oasis of hope and solidarity where 597 babies were born whose mothers were Catalan, Spanish, Jewish and gypsy refugees.


The second day of the route continues, from Agullana to the town of Las IIlas in North Catalonia, along one of the paths that, in February 1939, was followed by thousands of exiles, including many Catalan intellectuals and top level Catalan, Spanish and Basque political leaders, but also by the “treasure of the Republic”. On this itinerary, vehicle transport in combined with walking.
