In 1926, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was commissioned by communist art historian and collector Eduard Fuchs to build a monument to Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, two Marxist revolutionaries murdered by right-wing reactionary militias following the Spartacist Uprising. The commission was an unusually political one for the architect known for this political reserve. Completed in 1926 and subsequently destroyed by the far right in 1933 this book tells the story of this painful moment in history at the start of Mies van der Rohe's career.
