July 2016 marks the 80th anniversary of the military revolt in Spain and the start of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Few 20th-century conflicts were as ideologically and emotionally charged. The consequences of a military victory and the fall of the Spanish Republic were dire: the outbreak of World War six months later, forty-years of repressive rule in Spain, and thousands of Spanish exiles and refugees displaced across Europe and the Americas. Internationally, writers and artists responded with moral outrage to the attack on democracy by military and fascist forces: Auden, Dos Passos, Ehrenburg, Hemingway, Koestler, Lee, Malraux, Neruda, Orwell, Vallejo, to name a few.
