Rosa Luxemburg and Internationalism, Ctd

Rosa Luxemburg wrote in 1917 from prison to a friend, Matilda Verm:
“What do you want with these special Jewish pains, I feel as close the wretched victims of the robber plantations of Putumayo and the blacks of Africa with whose bodies the Europeans played ball. I have no special corner in my heart for the ghetto. I’m at home in the entire world, where there are clouds and birds and human tears.”
