The lyrics to the MANIC STREET PREACHERS‘ Number One single ‘IF YOU TOLERATE THIS YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT’ are to be used in a major exhibition on the Spanish Civil War.
The exhibition, titled ‘The Spanish Civil War – Dreams And Nightmares’, starts on October 20 at the London Imperial War Museum.
The exhibition coincides with the 65th anniversary of the arrival in Spain of
the International Brigades – volunteers from countries including Britain and the United States, who supported the Republican government in its struggle against the Nationalist forces under General Franco and his allies.
Bassist Nicky Wire has previously stated that the track was inspired by the conflict. The exhibition runs to April 28, 2002.
