I had the pleasure of watching To Say Goodbye a week ago. It tells the Heart Wrenching story when parents were forced to send children away from Civil war in Basque Country and the Nazi bombings in 1937 to the UK. Originally intended to stay for 3 months. A good number never returned. This is their story of finding their identity, struggling to fit in, getting over heartbreaks and missing their parents. Though told via Animation it does not take anything away from the astounding story of survival and their magnificent spirit. The Audio recordings of these 'Children' were awe inspiring and really draws you into their lives. To top the magnificent evening was the presence of the 'Children' behind the voices. A truly powerful story told in the time honoured way - Orally.

An imaginative and striking way of telling the war stories of children. In fact the children themselves tell the story of how in 1937 their parents agreed to let them sail away from the Basque Country, then under the bombardment of Franco and the German air force. Of the 4000 who left, hundreds were never able to go home. We hear their voices, sifted from hours of interviews; we see them only in animation, intercut with archive footage, and sound effects which reach their goal of not sounding like sound effects. How they hid in hedges from the German planes, how when they reached England they stored food to take to their families, because they still believed it was 'only for 3 months', how their sense of identity was changed. A civil war story worth telling and told well.
