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. Eleanor Penny travelled to Berlin on the 100th anniversary of her death to learn more about Red Rosa.
