Talk:Francisco Ferrer Guardia
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Joseph McCabe's intro to his 1913 translation of Ferrer's Origin and Ideals of the Modern School notes Ferrer's death date as October 12, 1909, not October 13 as this article says at the beginning. I also found a reference to a Ferrer memorial on October 12, 1913 in the Goldman Papers Project at UC Berkeley . Perhaps the 13th was his burial date, but I think contemporary sources point to the 12th for his death. Mike Dillon 07:29, 25 September 2005 (UTC)
Don't you think that last paragraph about the Lex ave. bomb is inflammatory? They were Caron, Hansen and Berg were only associated with the Ferrer Center and please cite where it says that they planned the bombing there. Not everyone in the flat was killed, either. Please remove or rethink this paragraph.
Francesc Ferrer i Guardia was a notable Freemason -his Masonic attire is displayed at the Grand Orient de France museum. It must be added that Freemasonry, in Spain, has been mostly a progressive and left-thinking association. In case sources are needed,
The French Connection
Difficult to know how to integrate this, but the predominantly socialist and (of course) republican South of France were horrified by his execution. Many towns, including Carcassonne renamed streets in his honour.
