About Rosa Luxemburgo Rosa Luxemburg (Rosalia Luxemburg, Polish: Róża Luksemburg; 5 March 1871 – 15 January 1919) was a Polish-Jewish-German theorist, philosopher, and activist. She was successively a member of the Social Democracy of the Kingdom of Poland and Lithuania, the German SPD, the Independent Social Democratic Party and the Communist Party of Germany.In 1914, after the SPD supported German involvement in World War I, she co-founded, with Karl Liebknecht, the anti-war Spartakusbund (Spartacist League). On 1 January 1919 the Spartacist League became the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). In November 1918, during the German Revolution she founded the Die Rote Fahne (The Red Flag), the central organ of the Spartacist movement. She regarded the Spartacist uprising of January 1919 in Berlin as a blunder, but supported it after Liebknecht ordered it without her knowledge. When the revolt was crushed by the Freikorps (right wing militias defending the Weimar Republic and composed of World War I veterans), Luxemburg, Liebknecht and hundreds of their supporters were captured, manhandled and shot without trial. Since their deaths, Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht have achieved great symbolic status amongst both social democrats and Marxists.
