Manolo. A child in the Spanish civil war

ByMiguel Montero

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Spanish civil war exploded when the core of the Spanish character, forged over centuries, was assailed by the actions of new but misguided ideas in conflict with the Spanish spirit. Manolo is a living ghost of childhood lost, brought about by the horror of the war, that left the Country scarred for many decades. Wounds, which will never quite heal. It is through his eyes, the eyes of a ten-year-old child, that the consequences of such tragic conflict are viewed. Together with his friends, two boys and a girl of the same age, he transports us to the days, back in history, when death was around the corner and was accepted as the norm; when threats to innocent lives easily became a quick step to execution for the most trivial reasons; when food was scarce to the point of starvation. And amidst this turmoil Manolo survived as a refugee of adversity.
