Information and texts of Rosa Luxemburg:
Editor´s note: As we approach the end of 1999, the year in which we celebrate the life and thought of the revolutionary activist and thinker, Rosa Luxemburg, on the 80th anniversary of her murder by the proto-fascist Freikorps, we print excerpts from talks by Paul LeBlanc and Olga Domanski given at a forum in Chicago celebrating her life and work.

There is far less information about Karl Liebknecht in English on the net (more in other non-German languages):
Some links there:
Karl Liebknecht was a comrade of Rosa Luxemburg, and was instrumental in founding with her the German Communist Party (KPD) and leading the second wave of the German revolution. He was one of the only Social Democratic parliamentarians to vote against the First World War, and spent much of it in jail for sedition. This poem was composed while he was in jail during June 1916.
New translation from the German by Dougal McNeill, published in socialist review
And a small quote from Karl Liebknecht:
At the crash of economic collapse of which the rumblings can already be heard, the sleeping soldiers of the proletariat will awake as at the fanfare of the Last Judgment and the corpses of the victims of the struggle will arise and demand an accounting from those who are loaded down with curses.
