Austrian socialist or anarchist immigrants
- Dear all,
I am a new member, and I am originally from Belgium. The reason I
joined is because I do research on German and Austrian anarchists in
I have two questions:
1. Are there any descendants from Austrian socialists or anarchists
on this list? Or does anyone know resources to find them?
2. One of the sources I use are the many radical papers they
published. Could somebody explain what the following terms mean, esp.
their cultural context:
The first word is a mystery, but I am guessing it is a dialect
for "Gemeinde". I know the translation of the two others, but is
there a wine tradition in Austria in which the lower classes
participated? In one reference there is an announcement in
the paper for an international peasants' ball organized
by "Gmoa 'Trutzschädel'". Is this some kind of organization? Remember
these people were anarchists and working-class immigrants.
