Dussel, Inés – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
There are images in the history of education that can be considered iconic, images that are, as Georges Didi-Huberman says, "full of future".

When studying any aspect of the lives of children during the Spanish Civil War, or an institution or educational model of that time, it becomes clear that many factors come into play, none of which can be considered in isolation.
