Zoom Comrade Marina Ginestà, Spanish Civil War militant, January 29, 1919 - January 6, 2014
"The death has occurred in Paris of Marina Ginestà, who was the subject of an iconic photo from the Spanish Civil War. Ginesta, who was 17 at the time the photo was taken, was a member of the Communist Youth in Barcelona. She died today aged 94.”
Marina Ginestà left Spain wounded at the end of the war and was treated in Montpellier before embarking into exile in the Dominican Republic, on a ship where she met her future first husband.
Again she had to flee in 1946 from the Dominican Republic, persecuted by the dictator Rafael Trujillo.
