The Winnipeg: A Journey to Freedom

A book that helps us understand the pain behind forced migration.
Summary

This is the story of refugees from the Spanish Civil War who, with the help of the Literature Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda, arrived in Chile on board a ship called Winnipeg. 

A touching true story told by a little girl who allows us to connect with the universal feeling of rejection of violence, an issue that—undoubtedly— is faced every day, either directly or indirectly. 

Francisco Jiménez, author of the text, and Macarena Ortega, the illustrator, are the ones who provide us with the opportunity to talk about migration, acceptance, solidarity and the need to embrace ourselves as human beings. By using textures and collage techniques, we can learn about historical events in a friendly and artistic way.

 To expand the reading experience, a QR code is included in the book, where readers can find the narration in Spanish and English, a video interview with the testimony  of a passenger and other additional information.
