Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Milly Witkop(-Rocker) (March 3, 1877-November 23, 1955) was a Ukrainian-born Jewish anarcho-syndicalist and feminist writer and activist. She was the common-law wife of the better-known Rudolf Rocker. The couple's son, Fermin Rocker, was an artist. Witkop was born Vitkopski in the Ukrainian shtetl of Zlatopol to a pious Jewish Ukrainian-Russian family as the oldest of four sisters. The youngest of the four, Rose, also became a well-known anarchist. In 1894, Witkop left the Ukraine for London. In the decades following the 1881 assassination of Czar Alexander II, many Jews left Russia as a result of anti-Jewish pogroms throughout the Empire. Most went to the United Kingdom or the United States.show more
