Margarethe von Trotta's *Rosa Luxemburg* (1986; German: Die Geduld der Rosa Luxemburg; w/ subtitles)

To celebrate B Sanders' resounding victories today, let us now watch [*Hannah Arrendt* director] Margarethe von Trotta's multiple-award-winning 1986 film *Rosa Luxemburg* (German: Die Geduld der Rosa Luxemburg; w/ subtitles), about Polish-Jew Rosa Luxemburg's dreams of revolution and ultimate assassination by Freikorps proto-fascists (following the failed Spartacist uprising of 1919 in Germany):。You will note that the species of bird that appears repeatedly in this film is the same species of bird that alighted on B Sander's podium yesterday:the coal tit。
