IRIANNI ZALACAIN, Marcelino. Ax an Oak. Basques and Death in the Nineteenth Century Tandil, Argentina. Secuencia [online]. 2021, n.110, e1836.  Epub June 04, 2021. ISSN 2395-8464.

On January 1, 1872, half a hundred natives murdered about thirty foreigners in Tandil (province of Buenos Aires). The killing took place in just four hours. The judicial summary reveals a compulsive episode in the formation of the aggressor group, selective in terms of ethnicity that suffers the most victims and motivated from economic, social and even religious ideas. It is a diffusely xenophobic attack, early, rather rural and focused on Basque carters and merchants.

Keywords : xenophobia; compulsion; religion; commerce; basques.
