About Author

Emma Goldman

Emma Goldman (June 27, 1869 - May 14, 1940) was a revolutionary political extremist and author. She played an important role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in North America and Europe at the beginning of the twentieth century. Goldman's mother Taube Bienowitch had been married before to a man with whom she had two girls - Helena in 1860 and Lena in 1862. At the point when her most memorable spouse passed on from tuberculosis, Taube was shattered. Goldman later stated: "Whatever love she had died with the young man to whom she had been married at the age of fifteen. "She was born in Kaunas, Russia (presently Lithuania), to a Jewish family, Goldman emigrated to the US in 1885. She and rebel writer Alexander Berkman, her lover and long-lasting companion, designed the assassination of industrialist and financier Henry Clay Frick as a demonstration of misleading publicity of the deed. In 1917, Goldman and Berkman were condemned to two years in prison for conspiring to "induce persons not to register" for the recently instated draft. After their release from jail, they were captured - along with 248 others - in the alleged Palmer Assaults during the First Red Panic and ousted to Russia.On February 17, 1940, Emma Goldman experienced a debilitating stroke. For some time, her health improved slightly. She experienced one more stroke on May 8 and died two days after in Toronto, at the age of 70.
