Francisco Ferrer

In the book:  In Ragtime, Tateh was going to and event with Evelyn Nesbit that consisted of socialists and anarchists. The speaker that night was Emma Goldman and the event would help sponsor many different groups and Francisco Ferrer who was an anarchist himself (Ragtime p 51).

Ferrer wrote a book titled The Origin and Ideals of The Modern School Ferrer believed in co-education for boys and girls along with the poor and rich going to the same schools. At the time, literacy in Spain was only 50 percent and all of the schools were church regulated. In 1902, Ferrer opened the first Modern School in which boys, girls, rich and poor all attended and where religion was not taught. Forty more of Ferrer’s schools were opened and eighty other schools used his textbooks.  The Catholic Church and the King of Spain disliked Ferrer’s views and in 1906 and anarchist threw a bomb at the King and they held Ferrer responsible. His schools were closed down and Ferrer was imprisoned.

Once released on a few months later, he opened his schools again but soon an uprising occurred in Spain against oppression. The people of Spain lead by Jose Remero and Migue Moreno blew up churches, railroads and could not be controlled by the government. They were protesting the Spanish governments attempt to draft soldiers to keep control of Morocco. This week was named the “The Tragic Week” and although Ferrer was nowhere to be found during that week he was accused for being the leader of this uprising. The court found him guilty and Ferrer was sentenced and executed on October 13, 1909.
