Gorbea Primary School,1945 Class

 Although this is not a picture from Santiago or any place near this big city, the main character of this is my grandfather, who is one of the children portraited here. To begin with,  this school was founded by anglican missionaries during the first half of the 20th.Century. During these hard days, mapuche children had very  few opportunities to attend or finish primary school. Because of that,  it is touching the immaculate poverty an of these children. Finally,   I hope you notice  how proud  these  childre are, despite that some of them are barefoot and have rag clothes instead of school uniforms.
