Hitler-Franco meeting in Hendaye

Post by ignacioosacar » 09 May 2018 03:56

Dear Forum,

I suppose you have all seen the newsreel of Hitler-Franco meeting in Hendaye. I see that the railway station has not been modified a bit since that day. Does anybody know what was the precise location of the honour guard ? On what platform was Franco´s train standing ? And Hitler´s train, where the meeting was actually held? I will visit the place and I would like to take a sort "then and now" series of photos.

Cheers all

You can find a pair of "then" and "now" photos showing Franco's train and the German honor guard at Hendaye here:

Dear Ironmachine and von thoma,

Thank you very much for your advise ! Isn´t it funny we are writing each other in Shakeaspeare language instead of doing it in Cervantes´ ?

Afectuosos saludos
