Notes
The Free Voice of Labour: The Jewish Anarchists is the story of one of the largest radical movements among Jewish immigrant workers in the U.S.A during the 19th and 20th centuries, the conditions that led them to band together, their fight to build trade unions, their huge differences with the communists, their attitudes towards violence, Yiddish culture, and their loyalty to one another. The movie traces the history of a Yiddish anarchist newspaper (Fraye Arbeter Shtime - The Free Voice of Labour) publishing its final issue after 87 years. Narrated by anarchist historian Paul Avrich, the story is mostly told by the newspaper’s now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff.
