The International Brigade was composed of German, American, Canadian, and others from across Europe who came to fight the fascists. Since their own governments had refused to aid the Republicans, and in some instances had tried their best to prevent people from doing so, it wasn't very surprising that the returning soldiers at the end of the war were ignored in their own countries.
Some, like the Germans and the Italian, had to become refugees because they couldn't go home.
"Canciones de las Brigadas Internacionales" is another part of Ernst Busch´s recordings on the "Aurora" label between 1964 and 1974 for his wonderful "Chronicle of the first half of the 20st century in songs and ballads". It is the second collection in this series with ballads and hymns related to the fight of the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War.
