Juan Negrin Foundation (Carmen Negrin, France, 03/08/16 5:52 am)

John E asked me off-Forum for an update on the Juan Negrín Foundation and the archive.

We have just restored a few war maps on the battle of el Ebro, and continue classifying documents. We have a number of volunteers, but are looking for additional assistance. We would really like to put all the official documents on line but it will still take some time.

In addition, we just had an exhibit, first in Paris and then in Las Palmas, of a sample of books from my grandfather's library. It includes rare books such as España en el corazón by Neruda. It will be shown in Valencia at the end of the year and next year in Madrid if all goes well.

We also published a book on his brother Heriberto who was a priest and died in exile in France. The book was written by another priest from the same Claretiana congregation, Julio Sánchez. Sánchez discovered what a great writer and theologian Heriberto was, and the profound relationship between the two brothers. He even found a sermon of 1922 on "What the church owes women." Very avant-garde! At the beginning of the Civil War, Heriberto had heard that the priests were in danger. He informed his brother who already was aware of what was about to happen and thus started negotiations with Portugal to host the priests, but unfortunately, the crimes took place before any agreement was settled.

I have to admit that I took great pleasure in having a book on the Negrín family being presented in the presence of the Archbishop of Las Palmas! A few years ago this would have been unheard of.

JE comments:  I had an image of the Negríns as "anti-clerical" folks par excellence, but Uncle Heriberto suggests otherwise.  My thanks to Carmen Negrín for the update on the Foundation's valuable work.

I wish I could take a sabbatical in Las Palmas to help with the archival work.  (Hmm... anybody willing to bankroll your favorite editor's trip to the Canaries?)
