The Municipal Museum will recall their lives in a presentation

Saturday 5th May 2018

JAVEA NEWS | Concentration Camp

The Soler Blasco Municipal Museum will be remembering the lives of two Xabieros who were murdered in the Nazi concentration camps of Mauthausen-Gusen which was located in Upper Austria between 1938 and 1945 in a special presentation next Friday 11th May.

Batiste Bas Soler was born in 1912 and was incarcerated in the camp in January 1941. In November of the same year he was killed aged 29. Bertomeu Cardona Espasa was born in 1919 and was sent to the camp in 1941. He was also murdered in November of the same year aged 22.

Their memory will be relived as part of the presentation of the last issue of the magazine Aquaits 37-38 published by the Institut d'Estudis Comarcals de la Marina Alta which is dedicated to the repression during the war and post-war period in the Marina Alta. The presentation will be made by Rosa Seser and Teresa Ballester, specialists in this particular era of contemporary history. Also attending will be Josep Bas, a relative of one of the Xabieros.

The Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp was part of a large collection of facilities built around the villages of Mauthausen and Sankt Georgen an der Gusen in Upper Austria, about 20 kilometres east of Linz. Opened in August 1938, it became one of the largest labour camp complexes in German-occupied Europe within two years. Inmates were forced to work as slave labour under conditions that caused many deaths. The camps included quarries, munition factories, mines, arms factories and factories assembling the Me262 fighter aircraft. Although the deal toll remains unknown, it has been estimated that up to 320,000 people might have been killed in the complex. It was the last to be liberated by the Allies in May 1945. Four years later it was declared a national memorial site. Surviving camp archives recorded that over 5,000 Spaniards were murdered, sent to the complex as political prisoners, Republicans who had fled to France after Franco's victory. Placed in interment camps by the French government, they were deported to concentration camps in Germany and Austria after the German invasion in 1940.
