The routes to exile

Scott Soo

Manchester University Press

This chapter explores the Spanish republicans’ responses to the onset of exile with a focus on the reconstruction of their organisations, networks and collective identities. The chapter presents an overview of the Spanish republican government and the main organisations in exile before looking at the reconstruction of inter-personal and organisational networks in the camps. It additionally reveals the effects of internment and the various ways in which refugees recreated group identities, from the telling of stories to the commemoration of dates from the Spanish and French republican calendars.

Keywords:   Commemoration, Identity, Spanish republicans, Concentration camps, Internment camps
