Between Cernuda's paradise and Bunuel's hell: Mexico through Spanish exiles' eyes

Title:
Between Cernuda's paradise and Bunuel's hell: Mexico through Spanish exiles' eyes
Authors:

Abstract:
D.H. Lawrence, Andre Breton, Sergei Eisenstein, Jack Kerouac, Bernard Traven: Mexico has had its share of European and North-American groupies who, fascinated by the country and with a backpack full of preconceptions, travelled to the land of Moctezuma hoping to find what they lacked at home. Ironically, though, few visitors will have been less interested in the country than the thousands of Spanish Civil War refugees who arrived there in the late 1930s and early 1940s. They did not go to Mexico because from the very beginning they had only one thing on their mind: getting back to Spain as soon as possible. That so many Spaniards were able to find refuge in Mexico was largely due to the personal efforts of President Lazaro Cadenas.
