Rudi Dutschke’s 40th Death Anniversary († December 24, 1979)

The spokesman of the German student movement Rudi Dutschke dies on Christmas eve 1979 due to late-complications related to the injuries he suffered in an assault. Eleven years earlier, on Holy Thursday 1968, the right-wing extremist labourer Josef Bachmann had fired three “politically motivated” shots at the “German Che Guevara” outside the headquarters of the Socialist German Student Union injuring him critically. Over the Easter holidays the assassination attempt leads to the heaviest riots in the history of the young Federal Republic. The prime target of the protesters’ rage is the Springer publication company, which is blamed for the attack, as it had led a malicious campaign against the head of the extra-parliamentary opposition, labelling Dutschke a “Communist pig”. 

In the meantime Rudi Dutschke undergoes emergency surgery at the hospital, which he barely survives. The head trauma of the once so talented speaker is so severe that his speech and memory faculties require rehabilitation. When the treatments are finished Dutschke feels the need for distance from the Federal Republic of Germany, so he leaves with his wife Gretchen and their two children. The family initially goes to Italy, but the omnipresent paparazzi make them flee to London after a few months. Great Britain expels him due to his supposed “subversive activities”. The family finally finds an exile in Denmark. In the mid-1970s he becomes politically active in Germany again and gets involved with the Green Party. The native Brandenburger repeatedly travels to the German Democratic Republic and meets with the dissidents Wolf Biermann and Robert Havemann.

After suffering an epileptic seizure stemming from complications related to the injuries, Rudi Dutschke drowns in the bathtub in his house in Aarhus. He was just 39 years old. Early January 1980 he is laid to rest in Berlin. Thousands of guests participate in the funeral procession.
