1936-1939: Posters from the Spanish Civil War Ruby June 27, 2014 1930-1939, War 3 CommentsFavourited 1054 times Add to favourites 3 Responses Anatole February 13, 2013 Great collection… I’d just quibble with the ‘atrocities on both sides’ argument. The Republicans and fascists were fighting for very different things. The Republicans killed priests and landowners, who were usually one and the same. The fascists killed workers and peasants – poor people. Given it was a fascist uprising against a democratically-elected government, the left was acting in self-defence. Reply Oscar Charles February 13, 2013 And not a single poster from the FAI or CNT, the CNT being the largest union in Spain at the time, and instrumental in a defense of the Spanish Republic after the fascist coup? Really? Reply Ruby February 14, 2013 You’re mistaken. See above, “Al Front” (man with helmet), “Compañeros” (foods), “Sindicato” (buses and streetcars), “Mañana el mundo, hoy España, and the nude man smashing a fascist serpent with a hammer. In fact there are lots of CNT and FAI posters. I’ve added a couple more today, for good measure. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
