To commemorate 100 years since the Spartacist Uprising, watch Rob Sewell, editor of Socialist Appeal, speaking in Gothenburg in November 2018 at the annual, national school of 'Revolution': the Swedish section of the International Marxist Tendency. Rob was launching his new book: Germany 1918–1933 – Socialism or Barbarism.

He explains that the working class came within reach of power in Germany, but were let down by the errors and inaction of their leaders, with tragic consequences. It is the duty of all revolutionaries to study the events of history, and learn the necessary lessons, so as to avoid the mistakes of past generations.
