On 26 April 1937, Gernika was bombed, the town completely destroyed and a lot of its population killed. This year is the 75 anniversary.
Thanks to people like the English journalist, George Steer, or the painter, Picasso, the whole world knew and knows what happened in Gernika.
To build the future, it is important not to forget the past.
I was there at the 50th anniversary and I will go there this year too.
Today, the town, almost new, is still the center of our Basque cultural tradition.
If you come to the Basque Country, don’t miss it!
