New York Marxist School's Annette Rubinstein, 1912-2007

Liz Mestres, Brecht Forum

Our dear friend and teacher Annette T. Rubinstein died in her sleep last night at the age of 97.
Annette began working with The Brecht Forum/New York Marxist School when we first opened
our doors in the Fall of 1975 and continued to teach wonderful classes on literature, drama and
politics until her last class on Brecht’s Galileo this Spring. She was a constant inspiration and
we will miss her terribly.
A mermorial will be held and we will let you know when the date is set.
