(p.179) Chapter 9 Exile and Homecoming
Anarchist Immigrants in Spain and Argentina

James A. Baer

University of Illinois Press

This chapter discusses the lives of refugees who fled from Spain in 1939 and evaluates the significance of this transnational history on migration studies as well as Spanish and Argentine history. Population movements transfer more than just individual immigrants. They also transmit ideas from one nation to another. And since migration sometimes leads to a return, those ideas can come back, altered by experiences abroad, and affect the country of origin. If Argentina became a nation of immigrants, Spain became a nation whose returning immigrants helped to shape its history. In the end, each country proceeded on its own trajectory with regard to the working class. The death of Abad de Santillán death represented the severing of the final thread connecting the two worlds.

Keywords:   Spain, Argentina, anarchist movements, population movements, refugees, immigrants, Abad de Santillán
