13 Memorial to Spanish Civil War
On the left hand side and before you reach the main entrance to the McManus Gallery & Museum, lying flat on the grassy area is the memorial to the many Dundonians who went to Spain in 1936.
They joined the International Brigade in the fight against the fascist forces of General Franco.
The plaque reads:
To the memory of the Dundee members
of the International Brigade
killed in Spain fighting fascism
1936 - 1938
- NO PASARAN -
Man's dearest possession is life; and since
it is granted to live but once he must so
live as to feel no torturing regrets for
years without purpose : so live as not to
be seared by the shame of a cowardly and
trivial past : so live that dying he can
say : "All my life and all my strength were
given to the finest cause in the world -
the fight for the liberation of Mankind"
