How many would the Republicans have killed if they had won the Spanish Civil War

As apparently Francos lot were a bad lot
Quite unlike those decent communists/republicans that so successfully ran the USSR, without ANY infringment of human rights or "disappeared" peoples,
So if the Republicans had won in Spain??
All sweetness and light thereafter.
I do wonder

It may have forestalled or completely avoided WWII. Hitler used the successful military techniques employed there via his tactical and matériel support, to build both momentum and confidence for his subsequent campaigns. A crushing defeat might have caused him to rethink his expansionist plans.

A provocative and compelling theory, to be sure.
