Famine in Spanish is a story of hope and perseverance. Famine is a condition where there is not enough food or other necessities to support the population. In Spanish, it is called “La Pestaña”. The year was 1811 and the country was Spain. The people were starving and the government had no money to provide food for them.
There was no food to be found anywhere, not even for animals. Some people resorted to eating their dead pets or even their children’s bones. This famine is now known as the “Great Hunger” because it occurred during one of the most devastating periods in European history: The Napoleonic Wars.
