Abstract

This article investigates the feminist memory of the Spanish Civil War, focusing on two relevant cases from the Jewish/non-Jewish Spanish-speaking world—those of Micaela Feldman Etchebehere and Marie Glas Langer. Both, the former a libertarian and the latter a communist, were involved in medical practices and authored personal narratives of caring in which the gender issue constitutes a key element. The analysis of Feldman’s and Glas’s caring practices exposed in these texts follows literary research methodologies. It focuses on the reconstruction of autobiographical narratives, centered on topics of medical practice and caring, intersected by the “female” condition and by feminist propositions.
