Who Was Rosa Luxemburg?

Rosa Luxemburg was a radical, a rabble-rouser and a revolutionary. She was one of the most important thinkers of the 20th century and her calls for freedom, socialism and democracy scandalised people at the time both from the left and the right.

We sent Eleanor Penny to Berlin on the 100th anniversary of her death to learn more about Red Rosa’s life and legacy.
