About the Author

Nick Lloyd has lived in Barcelona since 1991 and has been running Spanish Civil Wars in the city since 2010. "I first became interested in the working class history of my neighbourhood of Poble Sec which eventually drew me back to Orwell and the war. I started doing the tours in 2010. I honestly never get tired of doing the same tours again and again because I get so many interesting people turning up, who assail me with streams of great questions, some of which I have no idea about and so I have to go home and research them. And so, although the physical routes we take are always very similar, it always goes off in odd directions in terms of topics. This is also because people come from many different backgrounds and countries and so often look at the war from the prism of their own countries (say, art and photography, the International Brigades, other conflicts such as the Greek and Finnish Civil Wars and WW2, the Holocaust, etc). People come from many different walks of life (university professors, artists, journalists, film makers, factory workers, history teachers and students, US marines, lawyers, etc) from almost 60 countries (UK and US first but also Albania, Egypt, Iran and China). They have widely differing levels of knowledge from experts in their field of the war to absolutely zero. A number of people are brought by some family connection (International Brigades, Popular Olympiad, Spanish Diaspora). Declared prior interests of clients include Orwell, anarchism, women’s history, photography and the Spanish Civil War as a prelude to WW2. I tell people I think what we’re doing is only on the edge of being tourism. There is debate, at times it seems we are discussing the whole history of the 20th century, rather than that of one city. People invariably also want to talk about the politics of today."
