Southampton 1937. 4,000 Basque children arrived on the ship Habana, evacuees escaping the bombing of Euskadi (the Basque lands), their home in Northern Spain. Guernica had been completely destroyed by the Nazi Luftwaffe - operating under the policy of Franco's Nationalist movement - and many British people were appalled, calling for the government to accept as many child evacuees as possible. At first this did not happen, as the British government held to its policy of non-intervention, but later it agreed to allow them into the country.
