Inside were 4,500 negatives taken by friends Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and David Seymour, exiled from Germany Hungary and Poland, who were to become some of the finest photojournalists of their time.

Through their work, the story of the Spanish Civil War and the exile of over 500,000 Spaniards to Europe and Mexico is revealed.
