Notes:
In a letter to his baby grandson, Bill Lazarre wrote that 'unfortunately, despite the attempts by your grandpa and many others to present you with a better world, we were not very successful'. Born in 1902 amid the pogroms in Eastern Europe, Lazarre dedicated his life to working for economic equality, racial justice, workers' rights and a more just world. He was also dedicated to his family, especially his daughters, whom he raised as a single father following his wife's death. Here, Jane Lazarre weaves memories of her father with documentary materials - such as his massive FBI file - to tell her father's fascinating history as a communist, a Jew, a husband, a father and a grandfather.
