CHILD REFUGEES OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR

  • Alicia Muñoz Ramírez Salamanca University

Abstract

The present work, the product of a research project currently underway, attempts to reflect on forced displacements from a historical perspective, analyzing by means of the study of primary and secondary sources how the term refugee is to be understood, the situation of child refugees of the Spanish Civil War, and the consequences of this war for minors. The paper includes a first approach to the study of the principal ways and mechanisms for evacuation in order to understand how, when, and to what countries people fled and the reactions which humanitarian aid to the child refugees of the Civil War generated. At all times the study maintains a focus on human rights, is framed within the field of study known as Refugee Studies, and is integrated in the historiographical line of inquiry centered in the study of the children of the Spanish Civil War. Taking as a point of departure this line of research this paper attempts to define a more specialized path with which to continue helping to rescue the voice of the historical refugees, and, at the same time, to contribute information which may help to develop more secure ways for refugees and more complete systems of aid and integration, above all for those who are children
