  • Congratulations to Mrs. EIDENBETZ who was so dedicated to save the women and children of the retirada. Very enriching story, a shame that parts are empty of furniture and objects. Thank you for the professionalism of the two people in the home.

  • and useful to the memory to find a place where were born of the kids in suitable conditions compared to the life of the concentration camps in which the (Republican) Spanish had been penned during the Franco victory in 39. Thank you Elizabeth and the Switzerland!

  • Swiss motherhood has been the refuge for the Spaniards fleeing the civil war in Spain. The refugees were herded into the camp of Argelès in appalling conditions with very high mortality especially for children. The Red Cross Switzerland funded this motherhood which saved many pregnant women and infants. Jewish women and children found refuge. The Switzerland confederation has not been exemplary during the second world war however the Red Cross Switzerland has been very active to try to save many Jewish children. It is also a part of this State. The memorial of Rivesaltes camp puts assets the dedication of the staff of the Red Cross Switzerland. Motherhood is well renovated. It is not furnished. The site lay in ruins before its renovation. Moving site.

  • very interesting view of how one amazing lady saved over 350 pregnant women from the beach detention camps of Argeles & St Cyprien in the Spanish Civil war RETIRADA period. A good visit for 1 hour or so,
  • It's exciting to be reunited with your story and be able to remember the people who helped selflessly.
