Biographical / Historical

Ramon de la Sota y Llano (20 January 1857, Castro Urdiales – 17 August 1936, Getxo) was a Basque lawyer, industrialist and prominent Basque nationalist activist. At the turn of the 20th century, he became a major sponsor of the Basque Nationalist Party. He took the reins of the “pro-fueros” Sociedad Euskalerria, often referred to as the euskalerriacos, and integrated it into the Basque Nationalist Party, a move that pushed the party towards more pragmatic political positions from 1898 to 1902. His shipbuilding and mining businesses earned him one of the largest fortunes in the Basque Country and Spain altogether.

Pierre Dumas (1 August 1891, Ariège – 23 September 1967, Ariège) was a member of the French Resistance during World War II in Toulouse, journalist, writer and politician. He served as MP from the Haute-Garonne department from 1945 to 1946. When he was working for the La Petite Gironde newspaper, he was sent to cover the Spanish Civil War in Nafarroa, Castile, Aragon and the Basque Country. From his time as war correspondent is the series of articles titled Le Tragique Destin d’Euzkadi.
