Chapter Summary

On 28 October 1938, Barcelona bade farewell to the international volunteers who from the beginning of the war had come to fight for the Republic. The event was extremely emotional. All of Barcelona came out to say goodbye to the approximately thirteen thousand members of the brigades still in the Republican Army at that time. Our people know how much the heroism of the International Brigades has contributed to blocking the greedy avalanche of fascism. That is why the historical moment of the farewell to the truly voluntary forces that have fought in our ranks inspired one of the most emotional and impressive outbursts of support ever seen in our country. The most emotional moment was the appearance in the parade of the international fighters. Spectators burst into indescribable and uninterrupted applause for them.
