Mollie Steimer

There's something great about discovering a new fascinating historical person.  History is about people and their stories; that's why the word for history derives from Latin and Greeks words which also mean -you guessed it!- story.  Today's historical discovery is Mollie Steimer, a Jewish American anarchist. She and fellow anarchists had an apartment in Harlem, at 5 East 104th Street, which I totally want to visit now. Her story is so intense and interesting; it could easily be made into a really great miniseries, so make sure you check out the link.
