The 2019 Anniversary of the sinking of the Ciudad de Barcelona was focused on the involvement of young people from schools in Malgrat de Mar and neighbouring Lloret de mar.
The day started with the showing of films that the student have been making about the different International brigadistas then moved on to a gymkhana around Malgrat that included finding historical sights of the story. This was aided by the 15th Brigade re-enactment group who also put the International Brigade flag at the highest point of Malgrat.
The students also helped in the carving of the stone figures that will become the monument of solidarity Park. The final act of the day was the start of a creation of a Mural of the ciudad de Barcelona on a wall of a local Malgrat school. They used designs from the community porthole project that they had previously designed after having visits to their school by project artist Rob MacDonald.
