Jacob Penner, a Mennonite, emigrated from Russia to Canada in 1904 because his involvement in revolutionary politics was becoming increasingly dangerous. Rose (Shepak) Penner, a Jew from Odessa, emigrated to Winnipeg around 1900, escaping poverty and the terror of the pogroms. Rose became involved in the burgeoning workers' and socialist organizations and met Jacob in 1910. The couple devoted their lives to socialist politics. Jacob was one of the organizers of the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919.

In French: Un rêve rutilant : L'histoire de Jacob et Rose Penner
