Anarchists in the Gulag (and prison and exile)

Bolshevik repression of anarchists after 1917

80th Anniversary of the death of Nestor Makhno

leave a comment »

It’s 80 years since the death of Nestor Makhno in Paris.

We’ve posted a couple of pieces – a contemporary tribute from the anarchists of Toronto and John Manifold’s poem Makhno’s philosophers.

Elsewhere, the British Library blog has an interesting – book-focused of course – post by Olga Kerziouk, Curator Ukrainian Studies, called “Back in tachanka days” (after the first line of Manifold’s poem: a tachanka was a peasant-cart-with-machine-gun, a favourite Makhnovist weapon).

Worldcat has a number of books by Makhno listed: http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=%22nestor+makhno%22&dblist=638&fq=ap%3A%22makhno%2C+nestor+ivanovich%22&qt=facet_ap%3A

Don’t forget, the three volumes of Makhno’s memoirs  – The Russian Revolution in Ukraine, Under the Blows of the Counterrevolution and The Ukrainian Revolution – are available in English thanks to the efforts of Malcolm Archibald and Black Cat Press in Edmonton http://www.blackcatpress.ca/Form%20Price%20List%20May%202012pmd.htm
