Viñas vindicates Southworth

February 9, 2013

Cover of the English-language edition of Southworth's classic study (Univ. of California Press, 1977).

In an op-ed piece published today in El País, Professor Ángel Viñas vindicates the American historian Herbert Southworth and his seminal work on the bombardment of Guernica, while denouncing the continued attempts by right-wing historians to perpetuate some of the myths about the bombing spread by the Franco regime. Read the whole piece here; for a recent interview with Viñas in the Volunteer, see here.
