Berlin (dpa) - One hundred years after the assassination of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, the Left in Berlin thought of the two Communist leaders. To the memorial of the socialists at the central cemetery Friedrichsfelde also came the party tip. The national chairmen Katja Kipping and Bernd Riexinger as well as the heads of the parliamentary group, Sahra Wagenknecht and Dietmar Bartsch, laid down wreaths with red carnations and gerberas. Oskar Lafontaine, leader of the Left in Saarland and husband of Wagenknecht, also took part in the silent commemoration.
