Added DiffLines:

* NeverSuicide: InUniverse where the RAF regard any death of their members as a GovernmentConspiracy, whether in a gunfight with police or a death-in-custody through suicide or hunger strike. Holger Meins is implied to have died through deliberate negligence (by failing to arrange a doctor), though the movie leaves it ambiguous whether the others on 'Death Night' died of SuicidePact or conspiracy.

However this trope zig-zags according to the climate -- when the Lufthansa hijacking occurs, the televisions are confiscated, the prisoners are locked in their cells and wooden panels placed over the doors to prevent them communicating. The used radios smuggled into the cells to do so anyway.
