#StolenMemory in nine locations in Asturias
Starting March 30, we’ll be showing a new #StolenMemory exhibition at nine locations in the northern Spanish province of Asturias.
Twenty-eight posters tell the stories of people who were persecuted and deported to concentration camps in the Nazi era. Their personal belongings were taken away from them and have been stored in the Arolsen Archives since the early 1960s. Volunteers help us search for their families so that we can return the stolen keepsakes to them.
The exhibition focuses on the fates of persecutees from Spain who fought against Franco in the Spanish Civil War, were arrested by the German occupying forces while they were in exile in France, and were then deported to concentration camps.
The exhibition also tells the stories of three young men from Asturias and was created in collaboration with the school IES “Galileo Galilei” in Navia and the Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa (ICS).
The first location of the exhibition, that can be viewed from March 30 to April 28, 2023, is Espacio Cultural El Liceo in Navia.
