Talking to Manuel Tabuenca Gutiérrez (Barcelona, 1924)

by Almudena Rubio

Manuel Tabuenca Gutierrez is the son of CNT member Manuel Tabuenca Peña (Zaragoza, 1913- Mexico 1980). He was just 12 years old when the social revolution erupted in Barcelona in 1936. Now, at 94, he found the force to leave Mexico, where he lives, and travel to Amsterdam, together with his two daughters, Socorro and Rosa María. He came looking for information about his father among the CNT-FAI records deposited at the International Institute of Social History.

African workers on file. Three digitization projects in Ethiopia and Zambia

Wed, 2018-12-19 17:15

Stefano Bellucci and Andreas Admasie, our Collection Development staff members for Africa, have been setting up several digitization projects to safeguard and make accessible archives containing rich source material on the history of work, workers and labour relations. In November 2018 we visited projects in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Dire Dawa (Ethiopia) and Kitwe (Zambia). In each case we are closely cooperating with local universities and societal partners. Jointly, we try to improve the inventorization and the storage conditions before digitizing.
