On September 23, 1937, in the middle of the Spanish Civil War, over one thousand children left from the Gijón port of El Musel, most of them towards the Soviet Union, escaping from a conflict with no apparent end in sight. They were the so-called “War Children”. They grew up in that communist country but never forgot their roots. The process of returning began in 1956 for many of them, but others never came back. Seventy years later, the Asturian band Mus travelled to Moscow to perform for those war children who still live in Russia. The personal histories of those victims come back to life in their own words – to get rid of amnesia, to recuperate fragments from history and avoid oblivion
