The kidnappers of Munich 1972 have not been supported by German neonazis and did not demand release from prison for 2 neonazis, but they were supported by members of the RAF (Rote Armeefraktion) which was a left-extreme terrorist organisation. Such errors really should not happen in a high level production like this.
