Antifascistas is an exhibition telling the story of the 2,500 British and Irish volunteers who joined the International Brigades to fight against fascism in the Spanish civil war of 1936–9.

It looks at why workers went to fight, the sacrifices made and the enormous movement in Britain to support the republicans.

Unfortunately the exhibition is uncritical of the Communist Party strategy that ruled out any fight for socialism, but it is worth visiting nonetheless.
