About “Munich ’72 and Beyond”
On September 5, 1972 the spectre of terrorism began its haunt at the Olympic Games in Munich with the brutal murder of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches, as well as the tragic killing of a German police officer. Palestinian terrorists held the Israelis hostage for over 20 hours before ruthlessly killing the group of men.
For over four decades, the surviving family members have yearned to see their loved ones remembered. They have struggled as they sought answers to difficult questions that remained after the attack.
Munich ’72 and Beyond takes the viewer on an emotional journey from the beginning of the attack to present-day, where we are finally witnessing healing begin as a new memorial is being built in Munich at the Olympic Park.
