Bomb in Barcelona

7 June 1896
Call number: 
Sp 865/85

On June 7, 1896, a bomb exploded amidst a religious procession in Cambios Nuevos, Barcelona, which caused a drummer corporal and some bystanders to die. Anarchists from Spain and France were arrested and tortured in the Montjuich jail to force them to confess. The anarchist movement worldwide campaigned in pamphlets and journals against the Inquisition of Montjuich and made much of the torture involved.
