Rare title to the trial of Klaus Rainer Röhl’s magazine ‘Konkret’ founded by him in 1957. The articles in the magazine openly advocated sex with minors are at least as disturbing as the accusations of Röhl’s daughters Anja and Bettina that he molested them, which Röhl denies.
Editor-in-chief and Röhl’s wife, Ulrike Meinhof, ended up working for the magazine before she joined the RAF (Red Faction Army). Until 1964, it had a clandestine ideological and financial relations with the East German government. The style was innovative for its time and was appreciated by students and left intellectuals. It was beautifully illustrated and printed on huge folio size heavy stock.
