Tragic Week (Argentina) and Tragic Week (Spain)[edit]

I am working on an article about Tragic Week in 1919 Argentina, which included a pogrom against the Jewish population. I propose renaming the two articles as above, and making this a disambig page. Any objections? --Goodoldpolonius2 03:41, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

I am looking up info on the 1919 Argentina incident where according to my tour book "many lives were lost". Is there a separate article on this yet? Does anyone know the extent of this incident? This article might help-anyone speak spanish? Jd147703 20:04, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

I propose "Tragic Week (Barcelona 1909)". This was a mainly local riot, and a landmark in the history of the city, more than in the spanish history (unfortunately, other tragic weeks could be considered...). --Joan sense nick 09:08, 19 December 2005 (UTC)


This is classified as a pogrom in the Pogrom article. I added it to Category:Pogrom, but it was promptly removed by someone who said it wasn't a pogrom. So, was it a pogrom or not? Read Pogrom for more details. - Gilgamesh 14:17, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

This article is about the Tragic week in Barcelona, in 1909. This was not a pogrom against "a particular group; ethnic, religious or other"... "used to denote massive acts of violence, either spontaneous or premeditated, against Jews"... or " against other, mostly minority, groups". This was a riot of workers, leaded by anarchists, against the Military forces and the Catholic Curch. Not against "minority groups". I think you refer to another "tragic week" in Argentina, in 1919. --Joan sense nick 00:17, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Anti church[edit]

Common misconception people use about the anarchists in the Spanish civil war was that they were anti god or anti church. The only reason they were anti church if at all was because the church had power in the state, and the priests would take out guns and shoot at all anarchists. When the anarchists killed the priests and burned the churches, they were immediately smeared in the king supported press. From then on they were killed because they were anti god and church, when realistically that was all fabricated. I would edit the page but I do not feel like I have enough sources or experience to back all of my arguments.
