What makes a young woman join a terrorist organisation in the seventies? Is it idealism? Group pressure? A sense of justice? A feeling of responsibility? For what? And when this woman finally finds out that she has gotten caught in a dead end, how does she get out of it? How does it feel to be seen as an ex-terrorist? Why do people still talk about the RAF? Silke Maier-Witt, now 57 years old, will try to give answers to these questions. She was a member of the RAF, she spent ten years in the former GDR, where the notorious "Stasi" took care of her. She spent five years in jail, six years in Kosovo, and is now working in Skopje, Macedonia as a peace consultant with forum ZFD. There is enough to talk about. And what happened to her ideals? Is idealism always a dead end?
