1970 Late May 1970, West Berlin
The first German translation of Carlos Marighella’s “Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla” is published in Germany for the first time. Marighella was a Latin American revolutionary who had been killed the previous year by Brazilian police. His manual offers concrete advice for bringing traditionally rural Revolutionary tactics into the city. Mahler eats it up and quickly indoctrinates the other members of his group in its teachings. Marighella’s first suggestion: get professional training.
