Belchite, Spain

ENGLISH: Belchite is a village near my home town - for that reason I have visited it numerous times. Belchite stayed near the front during most of the Spanish Civil War and was destroyed during a cruel battle towards the end of the war. The village was left exactly the way it was when the war ended and a new village was built nearby.

---------------------------------------

ESPAÑOL: Belchite es un pueblo cerca de mi Zaragoza natal - lo he visitado numerosas veces. Belchite estuvo cerca del frente durante la mayor parte de la Guerra Civil Española y fue destruído durante una batalla encarnizada hacia el final de la guerra. El pueblo fue abandonado tal y como estaba al final de la guerra y un pueblo nuevo fue construído al lado.
