Assassination Attempt on Rudi Dutschke and Easter Riots (April 11-15, 1968)

Severe unrests occur in the young German Federal Republic during the Easter holidays in 1968, triggered by the assassination attempt on Rudi Dutschke on Holy Thursday in Berlin. The unskilled labourer Josef Bachmann—citing “political motivations”—fires three shots at the “German Che Guevara” outside the offices of the Socialist German Student Union, injuring him critically. Quickly, the news goes viral. Even before the shooter is identified Dutschke’s allies know for sure who really is to blame: the Springer publication empire, which has been leading a malicious campaign against the leading head of the extra-parliamentary opposition. Dutschke’s comrades unload their rage in a spontaneous protest outside the headquarters of the publishing company and chant phrases like “Springer—killer” or “Bild took part in the shooting!” While Dutschke is in the hospital undergoing emergency surgery and barely survives, the first rocks and Molotov cocktails are thrown—to prevent the printing and distribution of Springer newspapers. Peter Urbach, who is later exposed as an “agent provocateur” and as an informant of the intelligence service, contributes to the escalation of the situation. The following day the protests spread all over Germany. By Easter Monday civil war-like street riots take place in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and more than 20 other German cities. Two people are killed and hundreds are injured. In the aftermath the “Easter Riots” become the beacon in the escalating confrontation between the New Left and the state.

In 1969 Dutschke’s assassin Bachman is sentenced to 7 years in prison for attempted murder. One year later he takes his own life. Dutschke has to undergo intensive rehabilitation therapy to regain his speech and memory. He dies in 1979 from the long-term effects of the severe head injuries.
