Questions Posed by Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman to Lenin, 1920

In 1920, Goldman and Berkman gained an audience with Lenin, in which they asked a series of questions about the Soviet suppression of dissent and persecution of anarchists. Dissatisfied with his responses and disillusioned with the Soviet Union, Goldman and Berkman soon left the country.
