The 'Forgotten Battle' returns to Abánades this weekend

Abánades, a tiny town in the province of Guadalajara, is going to recreate this weekend the 'Forgotten Battle', which took place in its chambers between March and April 1938, being one of the most unknown of the civil war. The municipality was divided in two, with the nationals on the Castillo hill and the republicans spread over all the hills in the eastern half. And the building of the old school and forge, which is now a Historical Museum, served as an improvised kitchen to serve the troops.

In this ninth edition of the Historical-Cultural Promotion Conference of Alto Tajuña, which is organized by the Association of Friends of the Historical Spaces of Abánades, a solemn act will be held on Sunday morning, such as the burial with honors of the 13 unknown soldiers who died in the battle and whose remains were discovered during the archaeological excavations of the CSIC Incipit.

This year, for the first time, the Italian soldiers of the 'Corpo di Truppe Volontarie' will be seen in Guadalajara fighting around El Confesionario de Abánades. Likewise, during 'La Noche del Combatiente' there will be music, a period costume contest and, thanks to Professor Yuri Aguilar, two original short films from those years will be screened, such as 'Charlot waiter' and 'The fly man', by Harold Lloyd. In addition, Colonel José Romero will present the book 'Abánades 1938, the IV Army Corps, on the attack!' and Alfredo González Ruibal, from the CSIC Incipit, will give a lecture.
