Controversial Red Army terrorist exhibit opens
BERLIN - A controversial exhibit opens on Sunday on Germany's Red Army terrorists who killed over 30 politicians and business leaders from the 1970s to early 1990s.

The show in Berlin has drawn bitter criticism from families of those murdered by the Red Army which emerged the 1968 German student protests as a violent guerrilla group based on Marxist and Maoist class struggle.

Initially the exhibit was to have been funded with public money and had been given the almost positive title: "Legend RAF". For some on Germany's far-left, the RAF still have iconic, pop-cult status.

But a public outcry led to state funds being withdrawn and the reworked exhibit is now privately funded and will taking place under the name: "Presenting terror: The RAF"
