Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939

In his acclaimed new book, Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939, Adam Hochschild argues that we pay too little attention to this tragic piece of history and that, in a sense, World War II began in 1936-in Spain. Where else, after all, were Canadians, Britons, and Americans in uniform being bombed by Nazi pilots long before Hitler attacked France and Poland? Please join us for a seminar in which Prof. Hochschild discusses his work, and invites your response.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact Stella Kyriakakis 416-946-8972
