In February 1939, the authorities assigned a plot of land known as Judes to set up an internment camp for the Spanish Republican refugees, who were considered to be “undesirable foreigners”. Initially planned to last only a few months, the detainees in the camp were only liberated by the Resistance forces in August 1944.
During this period, people from different countries and with different destinies followed each other or co-existed in the camp.
Students, business professionals, witnesses, local residents and historians came together to breathe life into the fictional characters who embody these memories.
