Famous photograph by Robert Capa of a volunteer at Les Masies, near Tarragona in October 1938, at one of the farewell events of the International Brigades. I don’t know what heroism is but it’s on this face. Historical investigation of the place here
Another photograph in the same series by Capa. This time an Italian volunteer – he has a Italian newspaper under his left arm.
One of the revolutionary changes in Catalonia during the war, was the establishment of the CENU (Consell de l’Escola Nova Unificada) school board on 27 July 1936 which provided free, secular, mixed education for ALL, including to my knowledge the creation of the first free public nurseries in Spain.
We could do with going back to this universal system today, instead of the elitist public/semi-private/private modal which dominates today in Catalonia.
