The Basque beret arrived! The perils of eBay mean that it is child sized. The beauty of metaphor – and the deep resonance that begins to form when your research is expansive – is that this becomes intensely meaningful in terms of the exile of almost 4,000 Basque children to England in May of 1937. This as a result of voluntary efforts to save the lives of Basque children after the massacre at Guernica. Many children were killed in the war against fascism, which took the life of Felicia Browne in August 1936. Felicia’s commitment to anti-fascism, her reportage in drawing ordinary working people in their Basque berets and the efforts to save the Basque children are all intimately connected.
