years ago

27 March 1944,

American aircraft bombed Anglet and Biarritz. The purpose of the bombs was to destroy Nazi controlled infrastructures and, above all, Parma airport. However, 150 civilians were killed, 250 wounded and 375 homes destroyed. Since June 1940, the Northern Basque Country has been divided into two parts: Beyond Donibane Garazi, it was a territory subject to the Nazis and instead to the French collaborationist regime of Vichy. In November 1942, Germany occupied the entire French state.
