Sam Heie: Unit 8, Assignment 1

Ulrike Meinhof “Shadows of the Summit Pointing West” ?/!

?: Why did proponents for the anti-nuclear movement in the Federal Republic and in Central Europe get labeled as “potential war criminals”? It seems contradictory to accuse advocates of disarmament and non-proliferation of war mongering or being war criminals.

!: England was opposed to unification and integration in Central Europe because it would diminish their own power and influence in the region.

“The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum” ?/!

?: If the journalist that Katharina killed was so incessant upon investigating her, going as far as interviewing her mother in the hospital, why would the journalist scrap all of his investigative work in favor of asking Katharina to have sex? Was he only interested in sparking drama/tarnishing her image?

!: Katharina really didn’t do anything heinous to deserve any of the treatment she received.

“Baader-Meinhof Komplex” ?/!

?: At what point did Meinhof cross the threshold between dissidence and extremism?

!: I’m surprised by the lengths the RAF was willing to go in training their militants, reaching out to Fatah groups in Palestine.
