History:

It was set up in order to spread the memory of the anti-Stalinist left-wing, represented in an exemplary fashion by the POUM in Spain. The foundation's aims encompass both the action against every single manifestation of the totalitarian legacy and its consequences all around the globe. The Foundation Andreu Nin was named after an exceptional leading figure, murdered in June 1937 to silence his influence on the Spanish revolution and his leftist opposition to the projects in Moscow. Andreu Nin is one incomparable figure of Spanish Marxism, who contributed to the international labour movement. He is regarded as a symbol, a cultural and moral reference to this very day.
