In the Footsteps of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade: Following the Americans who Fought Fascism in Spain

Join us for a lecture and discussion on the nearly 3,000 American women and men who volunteered to fight against fascism in Spain from 1936 to 1939. Who were they and what were some factors that may have contributed to their decision to volunteer? Why haven’t we learned about them in school or through textbooks?
How has their legacy been treated over the years in Spain? And why is keeping their legacy alive of the utmost importance for young Americans?

This session is open to all.

Moderator: Dr. Simon R. Doubleday, Professor of History, Hofstra University
