Documentary Heritage and Testimonies of the Exile

Thousands of men and women were marked for life by the exile. The exceptionally traumatic nature of the experience meant that for years afterwards, many of the exiles kept in their possession different kinds of documents that bear witness to their ordeal. This space shows alternating exhibitions of some of the materials lent or donated by the people who lived through the Republican exile. These sources enable us to contemplate the exile from a more personal, individual perspective.

 

From 2009, in this section situated in the first flat, to the side of the room "The legacy of exile", have exposed documentation and original objects relative to Miquel Santaló, republican politician, Bernat Olivé, republican fighter of the Civil War and the Second World-wide War, Josep Mir, republican teacher, of the família Burguès-Padrós, exiled in Mexico, and of the family of teachers exiled Vilalta-Florensa.
