The Basque Pyrenees Freedom Trails’ Association (BPFTA) is a voluntary organisation based in the Basque Country and with an international membership. It is dedicated to the recovery of the historic memory of WW2 Escape Lines’ operations across the Basque Pyrenees and which assisted Allied escapers and evaders, amongst others, to escape over the border from Nazi-occupied Europe during that conflict. These commemorative events are aimed at paying tribute to all those involved.
The BPFTA will hold their annual cross-Pyrenees trail on 3 & 4 June 2023, following the Basque stretch of Irishman Tom McGrath’s escape from a Nazi stalag in Poland in 1942/3.
Information and registration sheets will shortly be published on www.bpftaww2.com however for advance information, contact at email@example.com
