, 1916

Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg stand for the radical, socialist anti-war movement during the First World War. In 1916, both were arrested for their efforts, condemned to four years of prison and in the end, murdered by reactionary members of the military. Karl Liebknecht served two years of his term in isolation in the Luckau prison. The Reichstag member and lawyer was assigned to the shoemaker’s workshop as a cutter. He had to make paper bags later. Food was scarce and of poor quality, cells tight, drafty and sparsely furnished. The only seat was the wooden prison stool. During GDR times, a kind of "Karl Liebknecht Commemorative Cell" was created in Luckau. However, it could not be definitively proven whether he was incarcerated in that exact cell. In museums, things are supposed to be in order after all. So, it could well be that Karl Liebknecht never laid eyes on our Luckau prison stool and never really sat on it. But perhaps he did!
