Dispute over Rosa Luxemburg plaque in Poznań, Poland

(Photo: Błażej Dąbkowski)

A dispute has broken out over a plaque to Rosa Luxemburg in the Polish city of Poznań, where she was politically active when the city was part of the German Empire. Activists associated with the main opposition party, Law and Justice, wish to see the plaque removed as a relic of Communism.

In September 2013, the plaque was vandalised and subsequently replaced (see: https://rosaluxemburgblog.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/poznan-plaque/)
