Media There is of course a lot of media on the internet about the Spanish Civil War. Images, video and music. In addition, the necessary links to anything and everything. This overview can therefore never be more than a (very small) selection. If you find something that you think is worth adding to this overview, I'd love to hear from you. Recently there was an article of mine in the cronieck of the historical society Oud Vries about the former fellow townsman Fedde Alberts. Fedde had gone to Spain to fight in March 1938. In December of that year he returned to the Netherlands injured. Read all about it in the article below. The MaxMagazine in October featured an article about a nail. That nail has everything to do with the Spanish Civil War and myself. Know what that is? Click on the image below to read it. Music During the Spanish Civil War a lot of music was made, music in the form of battle songs. But always to support, especially the Republican side. On this site, SoundCloud , I have collected some of them. Of course with a sound quality that fits the 1930s. Video Here you can see video recordings of the wreck of the Andra. She lies at a depth of 82 meters off the coast of Spain near Castro Urdiales. The images were made by diving center Mundo Submarino in Laredo, Spain. During my visit in 2016 I got them, along with the GPS coordinates, from owner Joseba. Here you will find a six-part documentary (English, no subtitles) from Granada Television, The Spanish Civil War. Part 1: Prelude To Tradegy Part 2: Revolution, Counter-Revolution and Terror (deze vereist wel inloggen bij YouTube) Part 3: Battleground For Idealists Part 4: Franco And The Nationalists Part 5: Inside The Revolution Part 6: Victory And Defeat But also this movie, The Spanish Earth is worth seeing. The film was made in 1937 by the Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens with a commentary by Ernest Hemingway. The civil war was then in full swing. The outcome was not yet determined.
