A video, courtesy of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, of Annelies Laschitza talking about the release of ‘The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg’ , of which she was co-editor.

Laschitza is the leading German scholar on Rosa Luxemburg. She is the author of a biography ‘Rosa Luxemburg. In Lebensrausch, Trotz Alledem’  and was a co-editor of Luxemburg’s Gesammelte Briefe (Collected Letters) in the GDR during the 1980s. She was also a consultant on the 1986 West German film Die Geduld der Rosa Luxemburg (dir. Margarethe von Trotta).

Here, she discusses the new collection, her thoughts on Rosa Luxemburg and explains how she and the other editors selected the 190 letters.

    Very interested to read this post and see the video Annelies Laschiitza – just found it by accident on Google. I have researched the film ‘Rosa Luxemburg’ (1986) from the perspective of East and West German film import in the 1980s. I hope to publish this work soon. Are you still at Swansea University?
