Rosa Luxemburg is revered as one of the leading socialists of the early 20th century, whose vision for justice and equality continues to resonate throughout workers movements today. Paul Fręlich was one of the founding members of the German Communist Party and a close comrade of Luxemburg's. Striking a balance between personal insight and political analysis, he traces Rosa's development from a humble Polish girl to the most important leader of the German Communist Party.
