Interview with Nick Lloyd about his work exploring the history of the Spanish Civil War and Barcelona’s relationship with this dark chapter from Spain’s past. Describes the walking tour he runs in Barcelona and how some of his guests inspired him to start collecting fascinating artefacts which help him tell the story of the Spanish Civil War. Discusses the key events, players and locations, and talks about themes such as the defeat of the military rebellion in Barcelona, the militias, the libertarian revolution, revolutionary violence versus Francoist violence, anarchism, George Orwell, and the bombing of Barcelona. Draws from his book Forgotten Places: Barcelona and the Spanish Civil War.
