Guernica: May 23, 1937

The Guardian archive:





The Spanish Civil War -- the one the Germans used to test out armaments soon to be employed in World War II. And the reports like the one at left are eternal in their simplicity and their horror and their inability to convince those who initiated the environment that cruelty, while fun for some, is needlessly stupid on the wide screen. Beyond vile ... it is stupid.

Read it. Six inches of type and it's all there.
