Melilla and the Second World War.

Emilio Cruz Umbria glosses about the presence of German submarines in Cape Tres Forcas
Albrecht Brandi –commander of U-617- after many adventures he returned to command two other submarines before the end of the war –the U-380 & U-967, falling prisoner of Canadians, as commander in chief of the Midget Submarine Flotilla. –in the Netherlands-

Professor Emilio Umbria Cruz holds in his hand a small model of the German submarine U-617 along with local historian Santiago Dominguez momentum that has made it possible to have developed in the UNED of 20 to 23 April 2010, days around Melilla in the context of the Second World War with the participation of many qualified speakers connected with that time in various disciplines that have attracted a good number of attendees at these conferences, even exposing some vivid memories of those years.

The photograph is a nice snapshot just before the start of the conference star. The legends and myths of German submarines in the Cape Tres Forcas near Melilla were known at the top secret aura. The first publications Manuel Cuenca, including lectures in Melilla Studies Association and other disclosures of witnesses and experts have attracted passionate about the stories of German U-boats of World War II as is the case of professor in Umbria data and photographs on display in his paper, the result of over ten years of intensive research. D. Emilio, is also my Director of Investigation

It is the voyage of the submarine U-617 led by their commander Albrecht Brandi Kapitänleutnant, which ran aground near the mouth of the River Kert ships pursued by allies a September 12, 1943. How workforce was housed in Tauima, moved to Chefchaouen, Ceuta and finally Arsenal de La Carraca the San Fernando (Cádiz).

Brandi himself after many adventures he returned to command two other submarines before the end of the WWII, dropping as the Canadian troops, survived the World War and died on June 6, 1966, and was buried with military honors at the cemetery in the German city Dortmund. Many visitors arriving in Melilla, as news of this kind of stories related to World War II in areas of the former Spanish protectorate in Morocco have a vested interest in visiting these locations in the neighboring country, either of English pilots, 1944, the bunkers of the " Pérez line" near at Muluya River, the operation in 1943 Backbone II American occupation of the former Spanish protectorate, or stories of spies who swarmed in the 40s Melilla as the attractive German spy Mary Riltter and the secret presence in our city's own of General Patton.
It's funny how the data in those 40 years were in the city of Melilla Consulates French, English or Italian, for the various powers were carefully Franco's attitude in his decision to join the Axis. Congratulate both the UNED in sponsoring such initiatives, which aroused much interest among the public of Melilla citizens also crossing borders by monitoring of this conference on Internet forums, hoping that these papers are published in a foreign war that almost caught us, as Santiago Dominguez Llosá concludes.
