On September 10th, 1981, Spanish artist Pablo Picasso's mural Guernica is received by Spain.

September 10th, 1981 - Guernica, a town renowned for its suffering heavily in the Spanish Civil War, receives the ultimate tribute to a dark memory. Pablo Picasso's monumental mural entitled Guernica is brought home to the town that suffered the brutality and darkness depicted by the famed artist. In 1937 German war planes had dropped half ton bombs, killing hundreds of civilians. The German's also fired mercilessly on peasants in the field. Franco's Fascist forces denied responsibility, but since Guernica was the capitol of the Basque region, the intent to intimidate was clear. Now Picasso's powerful indictment of totalitarian savagery belongs to a people who best understand its meaning.
