Re: Lincoln Brigade and Spanish Civil War #usa


I have three relatives/family connections who were active in the Spanish civil war. Helen North, my father's first cousin, served. Her husband Joe was a war correspondent and volunteer, and my father's first cousin Lydia's husband Dave Mates also served, and later had to testify before the HUAC. In his testimony, he was asked about my father's aunt Jenya and her husband Morris, and their Communist affiliations( they were among the founders of the US Communist party in 1919.)
