Synopsis: An investigation into the hundred years of life of Eusko Ikaskuntza, the Society of Basque Studies, the most important organization of Basque intellectuals of all the history. A journey that begins with its birth in 1918, in the middle of the ruins of a Europe devastated by the First World War, when the best heads of Euskal Herria met in Oñati to share their research on culture Basque from a universal projection.

Eusko Ikaskuntza was the promoter of the Academy of the Basque Language, Euskaltzaindia, and also the first promoter of the creation of a Basque public university, as well as the entity that drafted the first viable draft Statute of Autonomy unit for the Basque Country and Navarre.

The Society of Basque Studies survived the anti-basques military dictatorships of Miguel Primo de Rivera and Francisco Franco, and although their associates dispersed during the Civil War and the Second World War, he was reborn in 1978, when their forgotten files and the last surviving members of before the war passed the torch of knowledge to a new generation of intellectuals Basques.
