Curiosities of the new temporary exhibition rooms of the Museum of Jewish History
Santiago Sobrequés writes about the last days of the Jews of Girona for l'Autonomista (1934). At the end of the article Radio Girona promotes its radio station, located at number 8 Força street (now the Museum of Jewish History)
A very young Santiago Sobrequès (historian, 1911-1973) wrote the article "The last decades of the Jews of Girona" for the literary supplement of L'Autonomista in 1934. This federalist republican newspaper was published between 1898 and 1939 in Girona. It had been founded by its director, Darius Rahola, who also printed it at his own printers. The newspaper stopped being published in 1939, when the Second Republic was defeated at the end of the Civil War, since the press was confiscated when Franco's forces entered Girona. Its last issue was released on January 25, 1939.
