Post date: 17/06/2016

This message was received on 16 June from the Madrid-based AABI Internatinal Brigades friendship group.


We are suggesting the following dates for the 80th anniversary trip in October 2016. The dates are not likely to change, although the events for some of the days might vary a bit (Jarama/Guadalajara, etc).  


OCTOBER 22: Unveiling of monument to the International Brigades in Gare d’Austerlitz, Paris. 


October 23: Departure from Paris and arrival in Benicassim. Night in Benicassim.


October 24: Event in Benicassim (unveiling a monument likely). Unveiling plaque in the IB Hospital (now Hotel Voramar). Visit to cemetery, film screening, visiting villas where Brigaders were recovering. Night in Benicassim.  


October 25: Departure from Benicassim to Albacete. Event in Albacete (unveiling of a plaque is being discussed). Night in Albacete. 


October 26: Event in Albacete-UCLM / Madrigueras? (to be decided). Night in Albacete.


October 27: Departure from Albacete to Madrid. Night in Madrid.

October 29: Unveiling of monument in Vicálvaro to the International Brigades.  Night in Madrid.

Please note that AABI cannot organise hotels / restaurant meals. All we can do is to book the coaches and send a list of suggested hotels, and everybody is responsible for their own booking. 


Many thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you soon,
