This is reported by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, citing the New York Times. According to SZ information, the federal government also expects the cancellation of Israeli President Jitzchak Herzog. With their decision, the relatives want to protest against the fact that the Federal Republic, the Free State of Bavaria and the state capital of Munich have so far not met their demands for financial compensation. Ankie Spitzer, the widow of the fencing coach Andrei Spitzer killed in 1972, had repeatedly spoken of "tip" with which the relatives of Germany should be fed up. BUND, Free State and the City of Munich had agreed to pay another 5.4 million euros in compensation after 4.6 million euros had already flowed as humanitarian aids in 1972 and 2002. At the memorial event, according to SZ report, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier apparently wants to emphasize German responsibility for the then disaster and the later use of it.
