During the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), almost forty thousand men and women from fifty-two countries, including 2,800 Americans, traveled to Spain to join the International Brigades to help fight fascism. The U.S. volunteers served in various units (medical, combat and transportation) and came to be known collectively as the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.

The Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives (ALBA) is an educational non-profit dedicated to promoting social activism and the defense of human rights. ALBA’s work is inspired by the brave American volunteers of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade who fought and died fighting fascism in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). ALBA’s programs include teacher institutes, exhibitions, publications, cultural programs and an annual award for human rights activism, given in partnership with the Puffin Foundation.  Drawing on the ALBA archival collections in New York University’s Tamiment Library, ALBA works to preserve the legacy of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade as an inspiration for present and future generations.

La nuova sede a Milano in via San Marco. La nostra Associazione si è trasferita nel marzo 2010 nella nuova sede di via San Marco 49 a Milano in una antica palazzina che ospita diverse associazioni fra cui l’Anpi milanese e regionale. Particolarmente suggestiva la collocazione in un quartiere della vecchia Milano, all’interno delle mura, proprio sopra la Conca delle Gabelle, o Conca della Incoronata, dove la Martesana confluiva nelle acque della cerchia interna, fino ad arrivare alla conchetta di via Conca del naviglio, passando per via San Marco, dove si trovava il laghetto in cui si fermavano i barconi con i loro carichi di merci. La Conca delle gabelle era così chiamata a motivo del pagamento delle merci e delle persone trasportate sul naviglio.
