Gretchen Dutschke in Limerick and Dublin, 26-28 May 1968
Earlier this year Gretchen Dutschke, widow of the student leader Rudi Dutschke who died in 1979 due to injuries sustained in an assassination attempt in 1968, published her own personal memoir of 1968. The book, 1968: Worauf wir stolz sein dürfen, has been very favourably received in Germany. The author will be visiting Ireland in late May to give the keynote address at the 12th Ralahine Workshop in Utopian Studies “Realising Utopia: 1968, Then and Now” at Ormston House, Patrick Street, in Limerick, on Saturday, 26 May 2019 at 9.30 am.
