75th anniversary of the bombing of Eibar

While the bombing of Gernika is the most famous for the emotional importance of the town for Basque identity (historical seat of the Parliament and Government of Biscay), many other towns were bombed in the fascist advance of 1937 with the implicit support of Great Britain (imposing the international blockade to both sides, as if both sides would be morally comparable at all, but not enforcing it for the fascist side). 

Today we remember Eibar, an industrial town of Western Gipuzkoa, which was quite damaged as well:
