Mexican flag at the famous farewell to the International Brigades down Barcelona’s Diagonal on 28 October 1938. Some 250-300 Mexicans fought against Franco.

Mexico support for the Republic

Box for machine gun cartridges. Sent by Mexico to Spanish Republic. An artifact reminding of positive role played by Mexico helping Republic. I may be wrong but I think Mexico was the only country in the world never to recognise the Franco regime, not re-establishing until 1977


Page from the POUM magazine Socorro Rojo. “Our salute to the rebellious and generous people of Mexico”. 15 March 1937.
