Ulrike Meinhof


German journalist, left-wing activist and author, later part of the Baader/Meinhof group, who used terrorism as a form of political protest.

Meinhof's father died when in 1940 and her mother in 1948. She was raised by a caring foster-mother. Smart and a natural leader, she married Klaus Rohl in 1961, a columnist and editor in chief of the local paper. They had twin daughters in 1962. Meinhof became an author, a TV and radio playwright and a talk-show personality.

In 1969, she met Andreas Baader and they teamed up to form the Baader-Meinhof gang, calling themselves RAF (Red Army Faction). They began a series of efficient bank robberies in Berlin in January 1971 and the killing began with their shooting of a cop in October, with a second cop killed on 12/22/1971. Building up an arsenal of guns and explosives, Baader led the gang in planting bombs in an army headquarters on 5/11/1972. The explosion killed one and wounded 13.

The "People's War" continued with a series of bombings until a secret tip led to the police's discovery of their bomb factory-HQ. They shut themselves in the garage while the police bombarded them with tear-gas grenades, all shown on live German TV. When Baader was captured, they gave up and were all apprehended, Meinhof on 6/15/1972.

The trial began on 5/21/1975 of Baader, Meinhof, Ensslin and Raspe, with charges that covered 350 pages. While in prison, Meinhof tore the prison towels into strips and hanged herself on 5/09/1976.
