Hop on the Train of Memory on May 16, 2 p.m., at Instituto Cervantes. The film tells the story of almost two million Spaniards who left Spain in search of work in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and especially West Germany. Poor, unskilled, and largely illiterate, most thought they’d stay abroad for a matter of months, but many settled in these countries for the rest of their lives. The film recounts the harsh conditions that forced so many Spaniards to abandon their farms and villages in search of work, as well as the often less-than-welcoming reception many received upon arriving at their destinations.
