Hikaru TANAKA articles on the Anarchist Red Cross…

with one comment

… but they are in Japanese.

“The Anarchist Relief Organizations for the Prisoners and Exiles in Russia -Focusing on the Activity of New York Anarchist Red Cross from 1905 to 1920s” (English title, not in English but you can at least check out the footnotes)

[ロシアで投獄されたアナーキストを救援するための組織とその活動について ~ニューヨークのアナーキスト赤十字を中心に 1905~1920年代~]

Also, see the abstract for another (seminar paper):

Hikaru TANAKA: Activity of the Anarchist Red Cross from 1905 to 1920: Jewish anarchists crossing borders
We can note that in many cases, people often became anarchists through their migration experiences. Adopting this viewpoint, we analyzed the participating members and actual activities of a certain organization called the Anarchist Red Cross, founded during the Russian Revolution, by the Russian immigrant anarchists in the United States attempting to rescue their fellow countrymen jailed as political prisoners back home.
Consequently, we have come to a conclusion that the general understanding of American anarchists being the uprooted—those who lead a rootless lifestyle—did not necessarily apply to them. In fact, they aspired to maintain a network with the people in their home country, after they were settled.
