Since the 1940s, the Basque community in Venezuela maintained the Basque government in exile through its contributions and was very active in denouncing Franco’s dictatorship, running countless propaganda campaigns. The PNV (Basque Nationalist Party), the main figure in this struggle, made the film Los hijos de Guernika —a testimony of the Basque resistance to Franco’s regime.
