Who was Rosa Luxemburg? Chicago DSA’s Alec Hudson interviews Paul Buhle, editor of the recently published graphic biography Red Rosa by Kate Evans. The article begins:
Rosa Luxemburg is an anomaly for the Marxist left. A revolutionary leader whose thought has been embraced by Marxist-Leninists, anarchists, and even anticommunist social democrats, her influence on political thought has increased in the era after the Cold War. Born in Zamość to a middle-class Jewish family, she rose through the ranks of the burgeoning social-democratic movement in Germany.
