HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE WOLFSONIAN-FIU LIBRARY

LIBRARY OBJECT(S) OF THE WEEK

In celebration of the Christmas holiday, I thought I’d share with you a few vintage postcard images from the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. These two anti-fascist postcards were published by the Secours Populaire de France in Paris with the aim of showing solidarity with the Spanish Republic. This group raised money and collected gifts to be sent at Christmas time to boost the morale of the children of Spain suffering the hardships of war.
