History / Biographical Note

Biographical sketch

Angelika Isaakovna Balabanova (May 7, 1878, Chernigov — November, 25, 1965, Rome), Russian social democratic activist, participant in the Russian and Italian socialist movements. She served as secretary of the Comintern and later became a political party leader in Italy. In 1922, as a result of disagreements with the Soviet communists (in particular, disagreement with the tactics of the leader of the Comintern, Zinov'ev), she left her position in the Comintern and moved to Italy, where she joined the group of "maximalists" led by Serrati. After Serrati left the group to rejoin the Italian Communist Party, she stayed with the group and became its leader. With the rise of Fascism she was forced into exile in Switzerland. Later she moved to Paris, then at the outbreak of the Second World War to New York. After the war she returned to Italy and joined the Socialist Workers' Party, which became the Italian Democratic Socialist Party.
