After the Spanish Civil War was lost, around half a million Republican loyalists fled across the border into France, where they were herded into concentration camps. Frida Stewart-who, during the civil war, had driven an ambulance to Spain and assisted in the evacuation of thousands of Basque children-went to France to help the refugees. When the Germans invaded, she was arrested and sent to internment camps, from where she escaped back to England with the help of the French Resistance. This is her memoir of those events, first published almost eighty years ago.
