Space as a well of political power:

"As a group, isolated from the world like the crew of a death ship, the RAF leadership led a kind of mystical life of its own in the high-security wing of Stammheim." Pg 195


"Once in prison, the group developed a political stature they had previously lacked. The larger-than-life security precautions endowed the prisoners with a political significance they had never come near achieving." Pg 211


"A memorial of steel and concrete had been erected to them in their lifetime… Two hundred spectators could be accommodated in the courtroom itself, which was 610 square metres in size and lofty as a gymnasium. Neither the heating and ventilation pipes under the ceiling nor the steel structure of the roof were covered in. The walls were bare concrete… it was modern and functional." Pg 231

Those things
You had when you had
not had catastrophe
Are all gone now

But sometimes 
you can’t remember
Where your new house is
And try to call the dead:

Where was it, that
I moved out to?
Where is it, that
You now live?
