No one disputes Barcelona is a wonderful, modern & cosmopolitan city. It was for some years my home.
But truth matters. History matters. To compare in any way the situation in Catalonia with Bosnia/Srebrenica is dishonest and disgraceful.
I lived in Barcelona during the years of the Bosnian war. To suggest it was uniquely Catalonia that took in refugees is simply false.
To suggest it was 'Catalonia' fighting fascism in Spain is a grievous insult to the memory of thousands of Spaniards who fought and died.
It also conveniently ignores the role of the many Catalonians who collaborated with Franco's regime.
This new @omnium video is a case study in how historical truths can be distorted, and how nationalist propaganda is constructed.
