"Protest is when I say this does not please me.

Resistance is when I ensure what does not please me occurs no more"

On 9 May 1976, mothers day, she was found hanged by a rope, fashioned from a towel, in her cell in the Stammhein Prison.The official verdict was suicide.The official findings were not accepted by many in the RAF and other militant organisations, and there are still some who doubt their accuracy and believe that she was murdered by the authorities.

Meinhof's body was buried six days after her death, in Berlin-Mariendorf. In late 2002, following investigations by her daughter Bettina, it was discovered that her brain had been retained (apparently without permission) by a hospital in Magdeburg, following the autopsy performed as part of the investigation into Meinhof's death. Bernhard Bogerts, a psychiatrist from the local university who had examined the brain controversially claimed that Meinhof's 'slide into terror' might be due to surgery performed in 1962 to remove a brain tumour.On Bettina's request, the brain was interred in Meinhof's burial place on 22 December 2002.
