Facing Fascism

The exhibition examined the role that New Yorkers played in the Spanish Civil War, as well as the political and social ideologies that motivated them to participate in activities ranging from rallying support, fundraising, and relief aid, to fighting–and sometimes dying–on the front lines in Spain. The stories of these New Yorkers were told through photographs, letters, uniforms, weapons, and an array of personal and historical memorabilia.
