New book on Cubans in SCW
The Latin American Herald Tribune alerts us to the publication of a new study of Cuban volunteers in the Spanish Civil War. In La leyenda roja. Los cubanos en la guerra civil española, Denise Urcelay-Maragnès tells the story of the more than 1,000 Cubans–including a sizable number of Cuban exiles from the United States–who helped defend the Spanish Republic against fascist aggression. The portrait of one of these volunteers–whose identity Denise helped us establish–will be on display at the Agustí Centelles exhibit opening in October in New York.
