The world watched in horror as the heavily anticipated 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany turned into an international catastrophe. The Palestinian terrorist group Black September leveraged the lives of eleven Israeli representatives in exchange for the release of incarcerated comrades. German officials jumped into action even as the negotiations took a lethal turn.
With Irma Blanco & Carter Roy
Some terrorists use weapons. Some use information. The scariest use hostages. Every Thursday, Hostage tells electrifying crime stories culminating in intense, life-or-death negotiations. Within the stories, we examine tactics used by the FBI’s crisis negotiation unit, world governments, and even hostage’s parents, highlighting the techniques that saved lives, and the moments where everything went tragically wrong. Hostage is a production of Cutler Media, and part of the Parcast Network. New episodes release on Thursdays.
