The Free Voice of Labor: Jewish Anarchists (1980)

"Jewish Anarchists" traces the history of a Yiddish anarchist newspaper publishing its final issue. The story is mostly told by the newspaper's now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff. This is the story of one of the largest radical movements among Jewish immigrant workers in the 19th and 20th centuries and the conditions that led them to band together.

These elderly anarchists reflect on their lives spent fighting for a less centralized government, workers’ rights and above all, justice for all. In doing so, strong social bonds were formed while authorities, including managers, police and the government, put psychological and physical pressure on them.
