Cimetière du Père-Lachaise (continued): #49: Nestor Makhno

Nestor Makhno (1889–1934) was a Ukrainian anarchist who was jailed for life in 1910 for 'terrorist activities', but was freed after the February revolution, and founded the Ukrainian Revolutionary Insurrectional Army in 1921. He wrote his memoirs, a book about the Russian revolution in Ukraine, and various articles on meeting Lenin, work, and anti-Semitism.
