    The story of so many child refugees is such a sad one fraught with so many hardships, it is a wonder how they could even survive such an ordeal.

    This interview is a testimony of how children are the ones that pay the highest price in wars, armed conflicts and confrontations of the sort. At least it is good to know that some, such children, such as Herminio Martinez were saved from the abduction of Franco’s regime and were able to grow and even study to become professionals.
