Description/Abstract of your Event: 

In this panel, members of The Friends and Family of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade (FFALB) discuss the important problem of keeping the memory of the Spanish Republic and of the International Brigades historical and accurate. They question texts old (Orwell, Homage to Catalonia, 1939) and new (Spain in our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939, 2016). And they consider how issues of historical memory remain relevant throughout the world today.
