Hi all:

As you’ll remember I’ve written about my mother’s uncles, Josep and Conrado Miret several times before and recently I interviewed my cousin, Joan Molet, who told us how he had started his research and the work he does now as part of the Amical Mauthausen. I told you then that a few weeks later would be the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp and thanks to Joan, who attended the events, I can tell you a bit about it (and share his pictures).

Two groups of the Amical departed (one from Madrid and one from Barcelona) towards Vienna on Friday the 8th of May. There were around 130 people, including members of the Amical and students of schools in Aragon and Catalonia.

In the afternoon they visited Hartheim Castle, where they used to perform what they called ‘project T4’, the massive annihilation of people suffering from all kinds of disabilities (physical, mental) and other human beings that the Nazis didn’t think deserved the right to live. They used a gas chamber to kill prisoners from Gusen and Mauthausen and they also performed medical experiments on the prisoners.

Saturday 9th

In the morning the group visited the sub-camp of Ebensee where they rendered homage to the Spanish Republicans; they took part in the International Acts of Homage and visited the tunnels where they manufactured weaponry. Here there was another act of homage to the Spanish prisoners.

After that they took part in the inauguration of the monument to Ana Pointner. The monument was installed thanks to the work of the Austria Perspective Mauthausen. Enric Garriga, the president of the Amical, participated representing the organisation, and Juan Francisco Ortiz, son of a Republican exile who was also a prisoner at Mauthausen, and who now lives in France and plays the guitar, played a number of pieces.

(Ana Pointner collaborated with Francesc Boix photographer and prisoner at Mauthausen. She hid the negatives of the pictures that Boix had taken whilst at Mauthausen behind the stones of the wall at the rear of her house. Those negatives were used as proof in the Nurember Trials.)

Here a bit of an aside about Francesc Boix.

The entry in Wikipedia about Francesc Boix:

I leave you a link to a documentary about Francesc Boix called ‘Francisco Boix, un Fotógrafo en el infierno’ (Francisco [Francesc is Francisco, Francis, in Catalan] Boix, a Photographer in Hell). There were several versions but I could not find one with subtitles in English although there might be one. Otherwise I wonder if it would be possible to add them on. It includes images and even some film of his testimony at Nuremberg (he speaks in French). He was only 17 when he arrived in the camp and although he survived, he died at 31, probably due to sequels of the experience.

There are a number of interesting articles about his work, although the most recent ones I could find are in Spanish. Just in case you want to check, this one from the Spanish TV talks about the collection of pictures.

Here the wall where she hid the photographs

Afterwards there was another commemorative event at the train station at Mauthausen and they went to the Memorial of Gusen were further events remembering the Spanish Republicans and international events took place.

A delegation representing the Amical attended a concert by Juan Francisco Ortiz that took place at Mauthausen, where he donated a copy of the Republican flag his father had made whilst he was a prisoner at the camp.

Sunday 10th.

In the morning, jointly with the members of the Amical in France there were ceremonies at the Spanish and French monuments and together they participated in the international parade (the members of the Spanish Amical as part of the Spanish delegation presided by the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs).

Members of the expedition had free time to visit Mauthausen in the morning and they returned to Madrid and Barcelona in the afternoon.

Many thanks to Joan for his chronicle and for the pictures, thanks to all of you for reading and you know, like, comment, share, CLICK, and above all, never forget.

Hi all:

Normally I bring you a post in English and one in Spanish the days I blog, but today it is a bit different. One of the authors I know from a group of independent writers who write in Spanish, Blanca Miosi (she’s from Peru but has lived in Venezuela now for many years), has published one of her bestsellers, ‘La Búsqueda’ in English version. The book is called ‘Waldek. The Boy Who Defied the Nazis’ and tells the story of Blanca’s husband, Waldek Grodek, who was a concentration camp prisoner as a child and survived to tell the tale. I cannot recommend the book highly enough and audiences of the Spanish version testify to what a gripping read it is. It will tear your heart apart and put it back together. When was the last time you cried and laughed with a novel? WALDEK, the boy who defied the Nazis by BlancaMiosi

Waldek by Blanca Miosi

Waldek by Blanca Miosi

Waldek, the boy who defied the Nazis (La Búsqueda in Spanish) chronicles the dramatic and heroic story of Waldek Grodek, who experienced first-hand and at a very young age the German occupation of his native Poland. Many decades later, while visiting the UN offices that granted compensation to the survivors of the Nazi concentration camps, Waldek reflects on the events that started when he was made prisoner and taken to Auschwitz and Mauthausen and, in the years following his liberation, subjected him to the whims of European and Latin American totalitarian regimes, international espionage and the Mossad. Waldek Grodek is a memorable character whose unique perspective and amazing life story deserves to be told. After more than 700 days Waldek, the boy who defied the Nazis “La búsqueda,” still occupies the top 10 ranking on Amazon Spanish language. And just in case you read in Spanish and want a bit of practice, here is the link to the Spanish version:

As you know, my cousin Juan Molet is embarked on the task of researching and collecting information about our relatives, Josep and Conrado Miret Musté, who were exiled to France during the Civil War and ended up fighting with the French Resistance. In the past I’ve shared some of the documents that he has sent me. He recently sent me the document of a talk he gives to schools on the subject, and particularly about life in Mauthausen (where our great-uncle Josep Miret Musté was a prisoner during the War), and I thought it appropriate to share with you. I hope you find it informative and interesting. There are certain things that should not be forgotten.
Here I leave to my cousin Juan and his talk:

Xerrada Ies Les Termes 12 11 2013 007
My name is Juan Molet Vila, I am a member of Amical Mauthausen and Amicale des Anciens Guerrilleros Espagnols in France ( FFI), my great-uncles were Josep Miret Musté and Conrado Miret Musté , the first died in Florisdorff , command Mauthausen on 17th November 1944 , shot by SS Hans Bühner, and the second in Paris on February 27th 1942 .

First I am going to speak of Mauthausen. On August 8th 1938 the first prisoners arrived from the Dachau camp. The location was chosen because of the nearby granite quarry; firstly prisoners worked constructing the camp and then extracting stone from the quarry. The same happened in the nearby camp of Gusen in 1940. Until late 1943 Mauthausen was a camp where they brought political and ideological opponents, the conditions of the detainees were extreme and it was a camp where there was a high mortality rate .
From 1943 the prisoners are also used as labor in the armaments industry and the number of prisoners increased. In late 1943 in Mauthausen – Gusen complex had about 14,000 prisoners and in March 1945 there were about 84000. From the second half of 1944 prisoners from other camps started coming to Mauthausen in response to  the advance of Allied forces in the Second World War. This led to an overpopulation of the camp and living conditions became much harder.

In the complex there were Spanish prisoners, Austrians, Germans, French, Italians, Poles, Soviets, Hungarians, Jews…In total there were prisoners of over 20 nationalities. Between the opening of the field and its release by the U.S. military it is calculated that by the field passed 200,000 deportees.
Significantly, Mauthausen was not an extermination camp, it was a labour camp and most of the prisoners died because of their hard labour, because they were not fed properly for the work they did and sanitary conditions were very poor. Prisoners’ trades and skills were the main reasons determining their chances of survival.

Causes of death in the camp were beatings, bullets, by injection, some froze to death, by using the gas chamber, but most died from the exploitation of their labour . In the Mauthausen – Gusen complex 100,000 prisoners died, most of them in the four months before his release on May 5th, 1945.

The Nazis deported some 15,000 Spanish Republicans, of which 7,200 went to Mauthausen, 4,800 were killed and 2,400 survived.

Portrait à tirer MIRET
Conrado Miret Musté was born in Barcelona on April 15th 1906 and died in Paris on February 27th 1942, in Prison de la Santé. He was a member of the Popular Army of the Republic, with the rank of Major in 1938. After the victory of General Franco he was exiled in France, where he was the first Chief of the armed groups in the MOI (Immigrant Manpower), actively fighting the Germans in Paris and arrested for the first time in 1940, but he managed to escape. He was arrested again in Paris on February 12th 1942. He died after two weeks of interrogation. He was buried in a mass grave at the cemetery in Clichy (South of Paris), this mass grave was destroyed after the end of the Second World War and now his whereabouts are unknown. Recently documents certifying his death have been found in France and he has been named Honourably Dead for France in Paris on August 25, 2013.

Josep Miret Muste 1939
Josep Miret Musté was born in Barcelona on September 14, 1907, studied at the Escola Treball (School of Labour), graduating at age 18, here he developed his progressive ideals and he focused on the active struggle against the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera. During the Second Republic he joins the Unió Socialista de Catalunya (Socialist Union of Catalonia), becoming the head of the Youth of the party. On the 23rd July 1936 the party was one of four who founded the P.S.U.C. (Partit Socialista Unificat de Catalunya, Socialist Unified Party of Catalonia, a communist nationalist party). He became Counselor of Procurements for War of the Generalitat (the National Government of Catalonia) in 1937, but left the office to go to the front, as Commissioner Delegate of War in the Third Division, participating in the battles of Belchite, Mediana, Huesca and the Ebro
After the war he goes into exile with his wife Cecilia. During the journey, his son Josep was born. He was a prisoner in French camps until he could reach Paris. There, with his brother Conrado, he joined the French Resistance, and both were involved in acts of sabotage against the German occupation. At this time his wife Cecilia and son return to Barcelona because she does not want to live through another war.
He was arrested in Paris on 30th November 1942, at the apartment of his companion from the French Resistance, Lily Brumerhurst. He was transferred to Mauthausen, where he joined the underground organization of the PSUC. In the camp he finds out that Lily is pregnant and his daughter, whom he will never know, is well. This child currently resides in Australia.
In the camp Josep and other comrades do active work to help the prisoners, taking pictures, and becoming involved in sabotages and escape attempts.
He is wounded in an allied bombing in the Florisdorf Armaments Factory where he worked, and SS Hans Bühner finishes him off with a bullet to the head.
We can say that Josep and Conrado Miret Musté have begun to receive recognition by the authorities of the French Republic at the request of the Amicale of Spanish Guerilleros in France. We cannot say the same has happened in Catalonia and Spain where they remain two unknown characters, although Josep Miret Musté has received some recognition from the city of Barcelona, ​​where he has a street named after him, at the request of Amical Mauthausen.
It is, of course an honour to be related to them both, and I contribute my little grain of sand in Catalonia, Spain and France to try and bring attention and recognition to these two families, as well as to all those who participated in the Spanish Civil War, went into exiled, participated in World War II and then were forgotten by the victors of the Second World War. Only France welcomed them at the time, although many of them ended locked in concentration camps in 1939, others were persecuted, and after the Second World War (1944-1945) the French authorities of the moment completely abandoned the Republican fight, and of course, they suffered the forgetfulness and contempt of the Franco government in Spain.
Finally I want to say that if anyone is interested in exploring this topic in more detail, just let me know, right at the end of this act or through your Institute and I can provide more comprehensive information on the subject, thank you very much.
I will continue sharing the information Juan sends me, and if you want to contact him directly I am happy to act as go between.
Thanks to Juan for sharing his talk with us, and thank you all for reading, and if it was interesting, do not forget to share, to like, and comment.
From next week, as Christmas is quickly approaching, I will bring you a selection of classic post and various other things … And on January  we’ll start with new post (and news! )

Hola a todos:

Si seguís mi blog puede que recordéis que he publicado varios posts sobre los tíos de mi madre, Josep y Conrado Miret, y sobre mi primo Juan Molet, que lleva tiempo intentando compilar información sobre sus destinos e historias.

Los dos hermanos estaba metidos en política (el PSUC, Partit Socialista Unificat de Catalunya) en Cataluña, (Barcelona) y Josep estaba en el gobierno de la Generalitat durante la Guerra Civil Española. Cuando los Republicanos perdieron a manos de las tropas de Franco, los dos hermanos se exiliaron a Francia donde siguieron con su tarea política y participaron en la resistencia francesa, reorganizando el partido en el exilio.

A Josep lo capturaron, lo enviaron a Mauthausen y murió en Florindorf.

El destino de Conrado (el de la foto de la derecha) es algo más misterioso. Con su hermano se metió de lleno en la resistencia francesa contra los nazis, y parece que una de sus responsabilidades era proteger a importantes miembros de la milicia y también intimidar a traidores (sé que jugaba a rugby así que sospecho que debía ser un hombre fuerte). Estaba a cargo de la OS-MOI (l’Organisation special-Main d’ouvre immigrée) un grupo armado con milicianos de varias nacionalidades que luchaban con la Resistencia francesa. Entre otras acciones tomó parte en la destrucción de dos convoys militares alemanes, le prendió fuego a un garage alemán, y fue uno de los que atacaron la fábrica SOGA con cócteles Molotov.

Lo arrestaron en Febrero del 1942 durante una acción, y desapareció sin dejar rastro. No estuvo presente en el juicio de varios de sus compañeros, y se sospecha que murió bajo tortura de la Gestapo. Mi primo recibió una carta del Ministerio de la Defensa Francés donde solo pudieron confirmar que lo habían arrestado y había estado en la prisión de Fresnes ‘por actividades terroristas’ el 27 de Febrero del 1942. La prisión no tenía certificado de defunción ni otros documentos sobre él.

Hi all:
You’ll remember that I recently wrote a post about my cousin (second cousin on my mother’s side), Juan Molet, who is doing research into the family history, in particular about two of our grandmother’s brothers, Josep and Conrado Miret. They were both involved in politics in Catalonia (in the era of the Second Republic, pre-Franco), and Josep was the equivalent to a minister in the government and belonged to the PSUC (Partit Socialista Unificat de Catalunya, a communist nationalist party, still in existence today).

My cousin has been kind enough to share some of the information he has been gathering and I thought I’d offer you an update. Josep was involved in the French Resistance after he exiled himself to France during the Spanish Civil War, and he had a daughter with a woman in the French resistance. His daughter, Magdalena (is a name that runs in the family…My mother and one of her aunts are also called Magdalena) now lives in Australia. Unfortunately (but understandably in the circumstances) she has no information about her father.

Josep Miret Muste 1939

My cousin also sent me copies (translated to English) of testimonies from men who were with Josep during his period in France and later in the concentration camp. I enclose one of them, that I found very moving.

Memories of Miret – by André Arlas

Toward the end of 1941, the inter-regional head of the French Communist Party introduced me in Bordeaux to a ‘comrade’ so that I could in turn introduce him to the leader of the Spanish freedom fighters in Gironde and with whom I was in contact.

After having set a place and a time for that meeting, this ‘comrade’ whose name had not been given to me, left.  We had exchanged not more than 20 words and our meeting had lasted less than 5 minutes.  However, the brief meeting had made quite an impression on me and what had struck me about this comrade was his concise way in which he expressed himself, together with an air of authority and strong personality which inspired trust.

I had not realised then that I would get to know him better and in circumstances such that qualities, faults, greatness and smallness cannot be hidden.  I met this comrade for the second time in June 1943 and I found out his name:  Josep Miret known as ‘Emile’.  It was in the nazi extermination camp of Mauthausen.  A few days later, we left together for the Schwechat commando and from that time on I stayed with him until his death.  We had been assigned to the same kind of work and I was working opposite him at a welding bench.

During those long months of suffering I was able to appreciate his exceptional qualities.  He had the gif of attracting friendship and for those privileged enough to know him, he was a source of benevolent warmth.  He had a sunny disposition – how many songs had he sung for us – a great dynamism and vitality, he enabled us to share his enthusiasm and his unshakeable trust in the future.  Very modest, he never tried to put himself forward.  It took me months, following my questions, to discover what had been his important responsibilities in the Spanish Communist Party  in Catalonia, in the Spanish Republican Army, as a Minister , or in the resistance movement in France.  But most of all, he stood out with his unique personality, his calm courage and his very lively disposition.  One must add his instinctive kindness.  How precious have his support, solidarity, moral as well as material, each time he was able to demonstrate it towards his comrades, Spanish and French.  How precious as well have been his wise advices which have guided us.

Following the bombing of Schwechat, we were taken to Florisdorf.  During the air raids, we were sent to caves.  Josep Miret, lover of life, sun, ‘lover of freedom’ as he called himself, could not stand being underground like rats.  He therefore asked to be assigned to the fire fighting kommando.  Unfortunately, shortly before the camp was liberated, he was wounded and an SS shot him dead.

We were of course used to see death on a daily basis but his death had been considered by all who knew him as the most unjust.  He was a very dear friend, a beloved brother, the one we admired most and that we all mourned.

So, it seems normal, after so many years, that his memory has remained so vivid and I am certain that is the same for all who have had the privilege to know him.  Miret had always been very discreet about his private life.  He was telling me that now was not the time to be soft and wonder about the fate of our loved ones as we had no answer.  He felt that we should instead harden, and keep our strength to survive until the victory.

Thus, upon my return from the camp, when I heard about the terrible ordeal suffered by Miret, with infallible courage, my admiration for him grew even more. The death of Miret, who died so young, has certainly deprived d the Spanish Communist Party of a great leader.  By his demise, the Spanish people have lost one of their brightest sons and France lost a great friend.

For my part, I could never forget the exemplary man, in every way, that Josep Miret had been.

I hope there might be more posts to come with further information. And as I mentioned before, if you have an expertise on the subject or know somebody who does, we’d be very grateful to hear form you.

Thank you for reading. And on Friday…I’m waiting for confirmation of a guest post, but if that doesn’t happen I have some ideas…And an announcement to make about a free giveaway!

Hola a todos:

Creo que se deben acordar de que recientemente escribí un post sobre mi primo (primo segundo de parte materna), Juan Molet, que está investigando la historia familiar, en particular sobre dos de los hermanos de nuestras abuelas, Josep y Conrado Miret. Los dos estaba metidos en la política Catalana en la época de la Segunda República (pre-Franco), y Josep era miembro del PSUC (Partit Socialista Unificat de Catalunya) y del gobierno Catalán durante la época de la Guerra Civil.

Mi primo ha sido muy amable y me ha enviado información que ha estado recogiendo poco a poco, y pensé que podría ofreceros más detalles. Josep (y creo que Conrado también) después de exiliarse a Francia estuvo trabajando con la Resistencia Francesa, y de hecho tuvo una hija con una mujer parte de la resistencia. Su hija, Magdalena (es un nombre de familia. Mi madre y una de sus tías también se llaman Magdalena) ahora vive en Australia. Desgraciadamente (aunque es lógico dadas las circunstancias) no tiene información sobre su padre.

Josep Miret Muste 1939

Mi primo también me envió copias de testimonios de hombres que estuvieron con Josep durante su época en Francia y más tarde en el campo de concentración. Incluyo uno de ellos, que yo encontré muy emotivo.

Memorias de Miret- por André Arlas

Hacia finales del 1941 el cabeza regional del Partido Comunista Francés me presentó en Bordeaux a un ‘camarada’ para que yo se lo pudiera presentar al líder de los Luchadores por la Libertad Españoles en Gironde con quien yo estaba en contacto.

Después de haber concretado lugar y hora para el encuentro, este ‘camarada’ cuyo nombre no me habían revelado, se fue. No habíamos  intercambiado más de 20 palabra y nuestra reunión había durado menos de cinco minutos. Sin embargo, el breve encuentro me había impresionado, en particular lo que me había hecho más impresión fue la forma concisa en que este camarada se expresaba, combinada con un aire de autoridad y una personalidad que inspiraba confianza.

Yo no sabía entonces que le llegaría a conocer mucho mejor en circunstancias tales que las cualidades, faltas, lo positivo y negativo de uno no se pueden ocultar. Encontré a este camarada por segunda vez en Junio 1943 y descubrí que se llamaba Josep Miret aunque le conocían como Emile. Fue en el campo de exterminación nazi, Mauthausen. Unos días después, fuimos transportados juntos al comando Schwechat y desde aquel momento estuve con él hasta su muerte. Nos habían asignado el mismo tipo de trabajo y yo estaba en la banqueta de soldador frente a la suya.

Durante los largos meses de sufrimiento llegué a apreciar sus cualidades excepcionales. Tenía el don de atraer la amistad de todos aquellos suficientemente privilegiados que llegaron a conocerle; era una fuente de calor humano. Tenía un carácter alegre – cuántas canciones nos cantó- un gran dinamismo y vitalidad, nos ayudó a compartir su entusiasmo y su incansable confianza en el futuro. Muy modesto, nunca le gustaba hablar de sí mismo. Tardé meses, a base de preguntas, en descubrir cuáles habían sido sus importantes responsabilidades en el Partido Comunista Español en Cataluña, en el Ejército Republicano Español, como ministro, o en el movimiento de la resistencia en Francia. Pero más que nada, destacaba por su personalidad única, su calmado coraje y su disposición animada. También hay que añadir su amabilidad instintiva. ¡Que privilegio haber podido contar con su apoyo, solidaridad, moral y material, cada vez que podía mostrarlo hacia sus camaradas, Españoles y Franceses! ¡Que privilegio el contar con sus sabios consejos para guiarnos!

Después del bombardeo de Schwechat, nos llevaron a Florisdorf. Durante los bombardeos aéreos, no enviaban a las cuevas. Josep Miret, que amaba la vida, el sol, ‘el amante de la libertad’ como se solía llamar, no podía soportar estar debajo de tierra como las ratas. Así que pidió que le asignaran al kommando luchando para apagar los fuegos. Desgraciadamente, poco antes de que liberaran el campo, lo hirieron y un SS lo remató.

Por supuesto estábamos acostumbrados a ver la muerte cada día pero su muerte la consideramos todos los que lo conocíamos, la más injusta. Era un amigo muy querido, un adorado hermano, el más admirado y al que todos lloramos.

Por eso es normal que después de tantos años su memoria se mantenga tan vívida y estoy seguro de que le pasa lo mismo a todos los que tuvieron el privilegio de conocerle. Miret siempre fue muy discreto sobre su vida privada. Me decía que aquel no era momento de ser débil y preguntarse por el destino de nuestros seres queridos ya que no obtendríamos respuesta. Creía que en lugar de eso teníamos que endurecernos y mantener nuestra fuerza para sobrevivir hasta el momento de la victoria.

Cuando al volver del campo me enteré de las experiencias terribles que sufrió Miret, con coraje infalible, mi admiración creció aún más. La muerte de Miret, que murió tan joven, ha privado al Partido Comunista Español de un gran líder. Con su muerte, el pueblo español ha perdido uno de sus hijos más ilustres y Francia ha perdido un gran amigo.

Por mi parte, yo jamás podré olvidar al hombre ejemplar que fue Miret en todos los sentidos.
