On 15 January 1919, Rosa Luxemburg was arrested by government forces and taken to the Hotel Eden, where she was interrogated and then murdered.

Since then, demonstrators have marched to commemorate the murders annually (except during the Nazi era) on 15 January, or more recently on the Sunday beforehand.
