Sobrequés was born and educated in Girona, but, like other youths of the time, saw the beginnings of the Civil War cut short his career. Sobrequés began his academic work as a professor of geography and history in an institute of Terrace to its mobilization in the Republican army in July 1937. After the war, the historian was the subject of a report of treatment by the Francoist authorities, and after passing through Malaga, Figueres and La Seu d'Urgell, in 1942 he won the shuttle to the Institute of Girona. The show is also the friendship with Sobrequés Vicens Vives and educational reform that took place together, "in areas that left the censorship," he said Mercedes Morales, curator of the exhibition.
Specialist in social and political history of Catalonia in the Middle Ages, Sobrequés is the author of works such as The barons of Catalonia, Great Counts of Barcelona, the Catalan civil war and society and political structure in medieval Girona. The historian also wrote several textbooks for publishing text Teide.
