The maritime support for the Spanish Republic is still visible in Algeria.

More southernly, refugees from the Spanish Republic tried to flee to North Africa, for example from Alicante with the Stanbrook ship which brought thousands of refugees to Algeria in March 1939.

In the city Oran, Algeria, you can see a memorial dedicated to the refugees and the brave English sailors who rescued these refugees and brought them to Algeria.

The descendants of these refugees have an organisation and website that commemorates these refugees and events: Operacio Stanbrook
