Phyllis Lane, from the charity organisation the Canadian Committee to Aid Spanish Refugees asks Evelyn Ahrend, director of the Programmes Office of the Spanish Refugee Relief Campaign (an aid and fund-raising association for Spanish exiles created during the Spanish Civil War), of the possibility of having Guernica available for a brief period to exhibit it in Toronto and other Canadian cities such as Montreal, Winnipeg and Ottawa. She also mentions the activities of the Musicians’ Committee in Toronto to raise funds.
