The Spanish civil war remembered

Links to:

Last of the brigade (The Guardian)
"In a century of horrors which included two world wars, the Holocaust, the Stalin terror and Hiroshima, one event stands
out like a blazing beacon: the Spanish civil war. Some 2,400 British men and women travelled to Spain in the 1930s to fight in the civil war against fascism. The Guardian has interviewed 23 of the 40 survivors. Here are their accounts. Ian Aitken introduces interviews with the last survivors. Pictures by Eamonn McCabe."

Also has links to other sites on Spanish Civil War. Magnificent.
