Leah Feldman was an anarchist who was active in Warsaw, in the Ukraine with the Makhnovist movement and later in London. An obituary of her by Albert Meltzer is on the Kate Sharpley Library website http://www.katesharpleylibrary.net/9cnpsr


Here are the pages of Leah's photo album. Fortunately, Albert went through the pages with Leah and wrote down the names she could remember. If you can help us put more names to faces, or tell their stories, please get in touch.
