Tributes to Professor Feliks Tych (1929- 2015)

Professor Feliks Tych, who died on 16 February  2015 after a long and illustrious career, was one of the most important scholars on Rosa Luxemburg. He was the editor of three volumes of Luxemburg’s letters to Leo Jogiches (published in Warsaw between 1968 and 1971), a longstanding member and contributor of the International Rosa Luxemburg Society and the author of a vast number of articles, papers and studies on Luxemburg.

Professor Tych headed the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw from 1995 to 2006 and wrote on a range of other subjects, including the history of the labour movement in Poland and the Holocaust.
