Collelldemont, Eulàlia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
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.

Sierra Blas, Verónica – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015

Vinovskis, Maris A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
