Chaim Weinberg's 1930 Jewish Anarchist Memoirs Are Now Online
Wooden Shoe Books and the Dead Anarchists website are proud to announce the online release of Chaim Leib Weinberg’s Forty Years in the Struggle: The Memoirs of a Jewish Anarchist, which are translated by Naomi Cohen and edited by Robert P. Helms. We present this book for the first time in English, and in the only form that is now available to a general readership.
Recorded from oral testimony in 1930 and published in Yiddish in 1952, these are the recollections of an old fighter, spoken from memory. They are folkloric rather than scholarly, humorous, and entirely about common workers’ defense of their own humanity. Weinberg was an anarchist-communist who devoted half a century to union movements, the establishment of collective stores and communities, and the fight against organized religion. His main role was as a gifted orator –one who turned union drives back against the boss on many occasions, always to Jewish immigrant workers, in the Yiddish language.
