  • Author's note: On 12 October 1936, during the first year of the Spanish Civil War, Nationalist soldiers, supporters and sympathisers gathered in conquered territory at the University of Salamanca to celebrate Columbus’ discovery of the Americas (which he believed to be Asia). They were addressed by several speakers, including the rector of the university, the distinguished philosopher, novelist and poet Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936)
