January 15th 1919 - Death of Rosa Luxembourg and Karl Liebknecht


January 15th 1919: The leaders of the Communist Party, Rosa Luxembourg and Karl Liebknecht are murdered in Berlin by members of the volunteer corps, as a result of the so-called “Spartacus revolt “. The act sparks outrage, particularly amongst workers. While Liebknecht was buried at the Central Cemetery Friedrichsfelde under a great show of sympathy at the end of January 1919, Rosa Luxemburgs body was not discovered until six months later. Her murderers had thrown her in the canal and just as it was in Liebknecht's case no charges were ever brought up against them.
