The Mexican city of Morelia has marked the 80th anniversary of the arrival of a group of child refugees whose story has become legend.

The parents of the 463 children sent them on what was supposed to be a round trip to escape Spain's Civil War. Most would never come back.

They were called the "Children of Morelia".

Amparo Rius Munoz is one of the few survivors still alive to tell the tale.
