The Children’s Movement

An additional area of activity for the FAUD was the internal “Children’s Movement,” which was often supervised by the Women’s Groups. From 1928 until 1930 a separate periodical, “Kinderwille” [The Childrens’ Will], was published, reaching a distribution level of about 600 issues per publication period.

The aim was to raise children to be self-aware, socially capable individuals who had internalized the spirit of mutual aid and solidarity. The anarcho-syndicalist Children’s Organizations underline once again the syndicalist’s desire to tie together all realms of social life into a unified, organic unit. These organizations were, however, also short-lived.
