The article focuses on photographs taken by war photographer Robert Capa documenting the Spanish Civil War from 1936 to 1939. The photographer was born Endre Ernõ Friedmann in 1913 in Budapest, Hungary, and was forced to leave the country in 1832 in order to avoid being arrested for his involvement in anti-fascist protests. The role of the war and his relationship with German political refugee Gerda Pohorylles, known as Gerda Taro, in his development as a war photographer are detailed.
