The exile of Spanish and German intellectuals in Mexico: the comparison of two experiences - Between 1939 and 1946 Mexico City became one of the most important centers of attraction for European refugees. Many artists, writers, directors, philosophers and anti-fascist militants coming from Spain and Germany took refuge in the capital of Mexico. The author focuses on these two groups, highlighting common elements and main differences and taking the writer Max Aub and Egon Erwin Kish as an example. Using this as a case study, the essay develops a few methodological considerations on the opportunity to develop comparative studies on exile, overcoming the rigid classification and separation of single national cases.
