A Meeting with Hannah Arendt and Rosa Luxemburg
zo 14 apr15:00 - 16:30Zaal 3, Den HaagZaal 3
Rosa Luxemburg was friends with Henriette Roland Holst and Herman Gorter. Hannah Arendt admired her as “heroine of the revolution” and believed that no political thinker could ignore Luxemberg’s ideas. In 2019 it is precisely one hundred years ago that Rosa Luxemburg was murdered in Berlin. Time to reflect on her life and work.
It promises to be a wonderful afternoon: a philosophical lecture interspersed with music and film fragments and a reading of the most beautiful letters.
