Nobody wants to bo regarded as D reaction- aiy lo-'lay, she sa'ld. and it is "iif1 to oppose exisling society. Tlie Baader Mcinhof prob- leni has divided Germany's in- tellcctual Left' mlo two oppos- i ins camps. Professor Mas Ilovkhoimer, one c-f the found- iu-i fathers of the German New 'Loft, is convinced that Frau Mcmhof and her companions are achieving exactly the oppo- site of what they are seeking. i Their actions merely reinforce Ibfi Right and hinder change in 1 Germany. i For the left wing pcriwli- cal KONKRET, whicli happens i lo be edited by Mrs. Meinhnf's i PX husband, the HAF is so in- volved in erimc that it has be- come "a grave danger" to the eniire socialist movement in j Germany. However, Ulrike Meinhof has fc-und an eloquent defender in Heinrich Boell. one 1 of Germany's leading novelists and president of the Internation- al PEN centre. i crated by the cam- paign of Ihe Springer Press, vhich he condemns as an in- vitation to Ijiich justice, he de- cribos Frau Meinbof as a mis- j 1 puidcd idealist, tn despair. liuxirirs "f her grnup, Boell arn much wilder lhan actual deeds.
