Revolution, Repetition And The Cult Of Death: The Burials And Empty Tombs Of Rosa Luxemburg
Tuesday, June 30, 2015 - 18:45

Anthony Auerbach explores the posthumous career of Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919) as martyr and icon of a failed revolution, how her missing body became the object of several burials and how the burial site became the focus of annual funeral rites. Auerbach considers the historical expectation of revolution in the light of a cult that compels repetition.
