THE THREE LETTERS printed below are published in full for the first time in English. (They were originally written in Polish). Rosa Luxemburg was one of the great Marxist thinkers of the turn of the century. Born in Poland on March 5, 1871, she soon became active in the Social Democratic movement. Opposed to the PPS (Polish Socialist Party), particularly on the question of the independence of Poland, she and a group of young Polish revolutionaries formed a revolutionary Social Democratic Party, which Rosa Luxemburg represented for many years in the 2nd International.
