Spanish Civil War at Hull History Centre

- The Guernica children, Manuel Moreno
- Taking Sides: Posters from the Spanish Civil War, Dr Marianne M Gilchrist

Nine men from Hull fought for the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War between 1936 and 1939. Five never returned. One Hull woman, Frida Knight, served as an ambulance driver. The History Centre is delighted to team up with Hull College, the Hull International Brigade Memorial Group and The History Troupe to tell their story.

This Hull and the Spanish Civil War Exhibition features the core story from the Hull International Brigade Memorial Group; images from Hull College students inspired by the conflict; and performances on a range of related topics from The History Troupe, Gary Hammond and Manuel Moreno.
