The foreign aviation destroys and burns Guernica; the holy martyr city of Euzkadi.

This image portrays the bombing of Guernica on 26 April 1937. The swastikas on the wing roundels identify the bombers as part of the German Condor Legion responsible for the attack. Though Guernica was the historic capital of the Basques, the attack focused on the city center and market areas. The famous tree of Guernica and the assembly hall of the Juntas Generales de Vizcaya, shown burning in the image, were left unscathed by the bombing.
