Note: I am in the process of moving all of the content from my previous version of this site. The “who’s who” section should be mostly complete by the end of October 2011. Thanks for your patience!
The June 2nd Movement was the second most prominent left-wing terrorist organization after the Red Army Faction. Based in West Berlin, the June 2nd movement occasionally would jointly participate in actions with the Red Army Faction. In 1975 the June 2nd Movement achieved the most spectacularly successful action of all of the West German terrorists of the 1970s: the kidnapping West Berlin Mayoral candidate Peter Lorenz and the subsequent freeing of imprisoned terrorists in exchange for his freedom.
Note: The June 2nd Movement was the organization that tried to kill my mother and father while my dad served as the head of the US Army’s Berlin Brigade Bomb Disposal Unit.
