Summary
In 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, four thousand children escaped by ship from Bilbao and were given sanctuary in Britain. The book focuses on the experiences of the exiles who came to Wales where four Homes were established; it includes several first-hand accounts from surviving refugees. In one camp unrest by some of the boys became headline news, but overwhelmingly the children's experiences were of generosity and solidarity from ordinary people, even though Wales was itself suffering from extreme poverty
