After arrest: How differently ex-RAF members deal with their guilt

So this is how the fight against the system ends. In a slightly run-down apartment building in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The suspected RAF terrorist Daniela Klette is said to have offered no resistance when she was arrested.

What did Klette, now 65 years old, feel about it? Relief that it's finally over? Regret for wasting her life on a murderous ideology? Neither?

The RAF has been with me since my childhood. Not just in the form of wanted posters in black and white that we stood in front of as children in horror and amazement. I come from Karlsruhe, where Federal Prosecutor General Siegfried Buback was shot at an intersection on Maundy Thursday in 1977. Just a few minutes' walk from my school, where the RAF terrorist Günter Sonnenberg was also a student.
