Basques during WWII

Jump to last reply

I have been doing a lot of reading about the critical role played by Basque guides getting people/Allied POW's/downed Allied airmen fleeing German controlled areas in France, Belgium, etc, over the Pyrenees and ultimately on to Gibralter for return to England. More than 1,000 people smuggled into Spain, probably saving 1,000 lives. Are there museums, history centers, etc in Pais Vasco that focus on these heroic efforts?

BTW Mikelg: one of the articles I read used the word "mugliari". Thanks to you I knew its meaning!
