Sahra Wagenknecht (The Left Party): Rosa Luxemburg
"Rosa Luxemburg was a role model for me. She was a fierce woman who followed a straight path. She didn't let herself be bought; instead, she took a stand, even though it ended tragically," says Wagenknecht (candidate with Dietmar Bartsch). As founder of the revolutionary socialist group Spartacus League, later the Communist Party, Luxemburg, pictured in 1914, supported the working class.
