At the beginning of the Civil War (1936-1939) the monks of Montserrat had to flee the monastery and it was confiscated by the Generalitat de Catalunya. From April 1938, until the withdrawal of the republican army in January 1939, the site became a military hospital where recovery workshops were scheduled and, with the help of the poet Manuel Altolaguirre, the soldiers of the ‘XI Eastern Army Corps printed books and newspapers under the seal of Ediciones del Ejército del Este, taking advantage of the magnificent printing press that the monks had left in the monastery.
