Today Liebknecht and Luxemburg are captured by a Freikorps unit. Under the direction of Captain Waldemar Pabst, the two are interrogated and tortured. Both are clubbed in the face with rifle butts before Pabst orders them shot. Luxemburg’s body is dumped in a canal while Liebknecht is deposited in a morgue with other unidentified corpses.
