Nestor Makhno, Defender of the Ukrania

1918-21 Opponent of Whites and Reds

Makhno fought the Reds and the Whites, and was loved by many Ukranians to whom he offered more freedom than had anyone in their history. There is material for a fascinating and dramatic movie here. Especially see Emma Goldman's My Disillusionment in Russia for an account of her meeting with Makhno, in the Ukrania. -leif
