Description: The bimonthly anarchist journal, founded by the Ticinese Louis Bertoni, was published in Geneva from July 7, 1900 to August 28, 1940 ( Le Réveil socialiste-anarchiste , 1900-1913; Le Réveil communiste-anarchiste , 1913-1926; Le Réveil anarchiste , 1926-1940), the date on which it was banned by the Swiss Federal Council. The newspaper was published in French and Italian (see Il Risveglio ); they were two distinct newspapers. An important organ of international anarchism, but also of the Swiss workers movement, the newspaper had pages in Italian intended for exiled or immigrant workers. A German version ( Der Weckruf ) was published in Geneva and then in Zurich (1903-1907). Over a hundred small-format issues (untitled) were published clandestinely between 1940 and 1945 (see Le Réveil anarchiste, série clandestine ). Le Réveil echoed the controversies that shook the anarchist movement and related national and international events with a declared anti-fascist and anti-militarist position. Numerous political engravings, including the virulent Alexandre Mairet’s woodcuts between 1918 and 1929, illustrated the newspaper. A small bilingual (French-Italian) series was published after Bertoni's death.
