  • Description

    Titles read: "THREE SPANISH TOWNS".

    Tortosa, Barcelona and Madrid, Spain.

    Various shots in the deserted city of Tortosa showing scenes of destruction bombing and warfare after it was captured by General Franco in the Spanish Civil War. Buildings have had entire walls torn off by bombs and there is rubble everywhere.

    In Barcelona we see brief shots of an open air theatre. 'Las Guerrillas Del Teatro En Accion Contra El Fascismo - Por La Victoria Del Pueblo - Por La Cultura' is written on the back wall. Girls dance about on the stage.

    In Madrid, still uncaptured, we see people clearing rubble from bomb damage. Several shots of bombed buildings and apartment blocks.
