(en) Czech, AFED: Abel Paz [Traduction automatique]

Date Mon, 16 Aug 2021 09:42:45 +0300

In August this year, one hundred years have passed since the birth of anarchist and historian Abel Paz. ---- Abel Paz (original name Diego Camacho) was born on August 12, 1921 in Almería, Andalusia. From the age of six, he lived in Barcelona with his uncle, who, like Abel's mother, was a member of the Spanish anarcho-syndicalist unions of the CNT. He attended the Ferrerist Escuela Natura libertarian school. ---- He also joined the CNT in 1935, and after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, he took part in the fighting on the Catalan front. At the same time, he began contributing to Tierra y Libertad magazine . When Franco conquered Catalonia in 1939, Paz, like thousands of other anarchists, applied for asylum in France, where he subsequently joined the anti-Hitler resistance. In 1942 he returned to Catalonia and tried to restore the CNT. But he was arrested and spent several years in prison. In the 1950s, he again took part in the illegal anti-Frankish resistance in France. He also wrote books on Spanish anarchism, including the famous biography of the leading representative of Spanish anarchism, Buenaventura Durruti.

After the end of the Franco regime, Paz returned to Spain, then mapped the history of local anarchism and also wrote four-volume memoirs. He died on April 13, 2009 in Barcelona.

We had the pleasure of meeting Abel Paz during his lecture tour, when he stopped in Bratislava and Prague in October 2003 to talk about his experiences of revolution, anti-fascist resistance and emigration. The lectures also screened the documentary film Durruti in the Spanish Revolution , based on the motif of the book of the same name by Abel.
