The Basques

Copyright © Jocelyn Carlin 2001
The Basques are a people thought to be the oldest ethnic group in Europe inhabiting the same region for 5000 years and are now straddled across two countries —northwest Spain and southwest France. During the regime of General Franco (1939–75) the language and culture in the Spanish provinces were forcefully prohibited. By the 1950s, resistance groups had formed, most notably the Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA)—Basque Homeland and Liberty.
