Speakers at the grave

Speakers at the grave
Emma Goldman (in fur coat), at her left side G.P. Maksimov, at the coffin with white scarf Alexander Berkman

"Due to the limited time, number of speakers has to be cut... the latter spoke in the name of a few Petrograd comrades & read a paper that outraged everyone at the grave. It was a criticism of K's stand on the war, & of his silence in the last 3 years. Whether criticism justified or not, I considered it absolutely out of place." (Alexander Berkman, Diary 1919-1921, Berkman Papers, IISH)
