The Baader-Meinhof Gang Beate Sturm

Born in 1951. Gang codename: “Jutta.” Beate Sturm was a member of the gang for about three months at the end of 1970 and the beginning of 1971. She was almost caught when Karl-Heinz Ruhland was arrested on December 20, 1970, but managed to escape. Tired of the life on the run, Sturm quit not too long afterwards. Later she would provide extensive details of the gang’s inner workings.
