Rosa Luxemburg and the German Revolution
The German Revolution of 1918–19 put an end to World War I and the German monarchy. It brought forth a republic, but also deepened the split in the workers' movement. Rosa Luxemburg, one of the Revolution's paramount leaders, was murdered together with her comrade Karl Liebknecht on 15 January 1919.
In marking the 101st anniversary of both the Revolution and Luxemburg's murder, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung seeks to commemorate her legacy, the legacy of the Revolution itself, and generate new reflections on democratic socialisms past and present.
