MACCABI COMMITMENTS TO THE VICTIMS OF THE OLYMPIC ATTACK

Today marks the anniversary of the terrible Olympic attack in which eleven athletes from the Israeli Olympic team and a Munich police officer were murdered. At that time, the state made big mistakes: the authorities failed to create a security concept for the "cheerful games". The attempted hostage rescue ended in disaster & after the attack it emerged that Israeli offers of help had been turned down. Years of struggle for recognition and coming to terms with the events followed for the families of the victims.

The attack of September 5, 1972 left deep wounds. He is just one example of the threat posed to Jewish life by anti-Semitism.

50 years after the events, the mistakes made at the time must be acknowledged and responsibility taken.

We commemorate the victims:

David Berger
Zeev Friedman
Joseph Gutfreund
Eliezer Halfin
Joseph Romano
Amitzur Shapira
Kohat Shorr
Mark Slavin
Andre Spitzer
Yakov Springer
Moses Vineyard
