Tomorrow April 26 is the anniversary of the bombing of Guernica.
This is what Wikipedia has to say about it.

Joan Baez recorded a what I view as really important song about this butchery by the Fascists on her album named Baptism. The song is called In Guernica. I first heard in the late 1960’s while I was in college. Now I own both the ablum and the CD, plus I keep an MP3 copy on my cellphone.

This attack on innocent children and civilians was so terrible that Pablo Picasso painted his giant and famous picture depicting it which he called Guernica.
