Who was Rosa Luxemburg?

Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) was a prominent advocate of democratic socialism in Europe and one of the great women in history. She opposed the 1914-1918 World War with all her strength and was a fervent supporter of internationalist thought. Her critique of capitalism was passionate and convincing, and she translated this into political action. She was determined to lead an independent life contrary to the narrow ideas of her time. She was an academic who earned a doctorate at a time when hardly any women attended university. As co-founder of the Communist Party of Germany, she was one of the few women active in politics. However, even her own party was not free of contemporary prejudices against women who played a role in the public sphere. Rosa Luxemburg is a martyr of the German November Revolution as her right-wing enemies killed her on 15 January 1919. We at Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung are committed to continuing her legacy of democratic socialism.
