14 May 1940: the Death of Emma Goldman

2012_05_19_Star_May_14-1940_page15_375

Toronto Star 14/5/40

Although exiled from the USA, Goldman had never perceived herself as anything but an American, and had long wanted to be buried next to the Haymarket martyrs that had inspired her to become involved in politics as a young woman. Now, in death, the American government finally allowed her repatriation. After a large funeral in Chicago, she was buried in that city’s Waldheim Cemetery, next to a monument to the Haymarket affair.
