The 1936 European countries signed a Pact of non-intervention in the Civil War of Spain and suspended shipment of weapons to the contenders, but the Hitler Germany and the Italy of Mussolini did not stop sending weapons to Francisco Franco. This convulsed the lefts in the world in favour of the Republic that made that Stalin took the decision to support the Republican Socialists. But that was not free and had a cost paid for the Spaniards with their international reserves.

On September 13, 1936 the Government of Largo Caballero decided to move out of Madrid the reserves of the Bank of Spain for fear of the Franco’s advance. This decision was taken (do some resemblance with our reality?) secret and illegal according to experts of the time.
