The Baader-Meinhof Gang Monika Berberich

Born in October 1942, Monika Berberich was a junior lawyer in Horst Mahler’s Socialist Lawyers Collective. She joined up with the burgeoning Baader-Meinhof Gang when Andreas Baader was rescued from police custody in May 1970.

Berberich was arrested soon after the group returned from training in the Jordan desert. A 1995 interview for a BBC documentary called “States of Terror” revealed that Berberich has not changed her passion against the “fascism” of the German state.
