Robert Capa’s Shell-Damaged Slum to be Restored in Madrid –The Guardian

A squat, dilapidated house in southern Madrid that was bombed by the Nazis and immortalised by the photojournalist Robert Capa is to be preserved as a reminder of the suffering caused by the Spanish civil war and a testament to all those who have called its cramped rooms home. […]

The idea of the new centre, to be named after Capa, is “to recover a story that had been erased”. To that end, Uría is adamant that part of the museum should be given over to a recreation of how the building would have looked when the photographer found it and how “a simple, modest house was turned into a military target”.
