In 1939, 140,000 Republican refugees from the Spanish Civil War began a seven-year odyssey through the concentration and labour camps of fascist Europe. They became victims of internment, exploitation and deportation by the Nazi and Vichy regimes in France, Germany, North Africa and the Channel Islands.

The trilingual exhibition presents the story of these forgotten forced labourers of the Second World War to a European audience for the first time.
