The Germans of Haymarket: The Impact of German Radicals in the Struggle for the Eight-Hour Workday and the Making of May Day
Nikolaus Selm presents on the origins of May Day as the International Labor Day. German-immigrant  labor leaders, political radicals, and anarchists organized mass demonstrations in Chicago in support of the radical idea of the eight-hour workday. The demonstration and riot of 4 May 1881 was famous worldwide. Germans are found throughout this story, even the sculptors of the memorials to the police and the radicals.
