||Joseph Kleinman Papers
||Joseph Kleinman served as a volunteer in the Lincoln-Washington Battalion in the Spanish
Civil War. He was wounded in March 1938 and spent some time in a hospital; he was
killed at Sierra Caballs in September 1938. The collection contains eleven letters
which Kleinman wrote to friends Morris and Pauline Eitzer (and their young son, Demos)
and Morris and Nettie Srebnick of the Bronx, NY. Subjects of the correspondence include
soldiers’ participation in Bastille Day celebrations in Paris, the bombing of Barcelona,
Kleinman’s hospitalization due to a wounded right arm, his views on Nationalist General
Francisco Franco, and his urging friends at home to work toward amending the Neutrality
Act of 1937.
