Abstracts

Throughout the contemporary period, some Spaniards crossed the Pyrénées in order to take refuge in France for political reasons. Just before the tumultuous wawes of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), some refugees slightly forgotten by historiography, were also provided asylum by France. Despite their small numbers, it is interesting to study them because of their variety, and the way the French authorithies welcomed them according to their political beliefs. Fleeing from the ending dictatorship of the early thirties, the spanish republican refugees in France settled North of the Loire and were closely watched. On the other hand, after the proclamation of the Second Republic in april 1931, the Spanish monarchists who were treated with a certain laxness. The French authorities’ attitude was totaly different regarding the anarchist refugees of the October 1934’ failed revolution in the Asturias. This study shows that in France, during the thirties the conditions for receiving Spanish and other political refugees were selective, whatever the political majority in power was in France.
