The Jewish-owned Café Libman was located in the well-known Passage building. In 1905, with the aborted Russian revolution and widespread pogroms, Libman became the target of an attack bombing by a group of socialist-anarchists whose mission was to spread propaganda in the factories and organize revolutionary labor unions as vehicles of class warfare. The café was soon renovated and would continue to flourish for another decade.
