The Morning Star reviews the International Brigades exhibit currently on display at London’s Star Gallery:

This outstanding exhibition, largely drawn from the International Brigade Memorial Trust archive at the Marx Memorial Library, tells in words and pictures the inspirational story of the 2,500 British and Irish volunteers who joined the fight to defend democracy in Spain against internal and international fascism from 1936 to 1939.
