Commemoration of the Paris Commune in New York

20 March 1880
BG G1/789

Exiled French citizens throw a party in the "Germania" meeting hall in New York. They commemorate the Paris Commune, the revolutionary democratic city government that came into being on March 18, 1871, and two months later was destroyed by brute force and exiling of the "undesirable elements."
