Rosa Luxemburg was the first economist to receive a doctorate from the University of Zurich, a nature-loving botanist and zoologist, and an outstanding literary figure. This background was part of the basis of what constituted her socialism, which was revolutionary, humane, democratic and life-improving.
The texts are accompanied by songs by Michel Legrand, songs by Eva Klampfer, the composition "Zal" by Richie Beirach and improvisations by Angelika Hagen and Andi Schreiber. (press release)
Many people know her name and believe that they can place her somewhere within communism - although she was one of the harshest critics of the Leninist model; few know what she wanted, what she lived for and how broad her spectrum was. Rosa Luxemburg was the first economist to receive a doctorate from the University of Zurich, a nature-loving botanist and zoologist, and an outstanding literary figure. This background was part of the basis of what constituted her socialism, which was revolutionary, humane, democratic, and life-improving. She fought nationalism and opportunism within the SPD. For them, being socialist did not mean taking the biggest piece of the capitalist pie possible; it meant a "different way of life" in political, economic, social freedom and justice. For her, this included solidarity and compassion for people and animals. Words and deeds coincided for her. Thus she left behind - in her theoretical writings and through her life practice - the legacy of a socialism that is still unfulfilled today and that we as a society need more than ever before.
