Exile and childhood

Travelling seminar in Gernika


  • The Gernika Peace Museum hosts the first travelling seminar of the project Migration and Humanitarian Aid in Europe (MIGRAID);
  • The meeting will gather the representatives of the seven partners of the project and will include open talks by professor José Jesús Alonso Carballés and Iñaki Goiogana on March 25 at 18h30;
  • The participants will also join a Memoritour Gernika and will visit memorial sites related to childhood and exile in the coast side.

The project MIGRAID aims to draw attention to the importance, interest and timeliness of the migration flows and exiles, highlighting the activity developed by volunteers and humanitarian organizations between 1914 and 1949, a conflictive and convulse period of the European history.
