The bombing of Guernica is rightly recognised as one of the most shocking and inhumane raids in modern warfare.  The German Luftwaffe dropped bombs on a defenceless civilian population, allegedly for experimental purposes.  As many facts and figures as history books can tell us, as many horrors as they describe, we read with a slightly detached view.  By introducing individual characters, people who have a back story and a future and a family and a personality can we understand how it would feel to be part of such devastation. IT’S NOT GOING TO END WELL IS IT?
