Munich ’72 and Beyond 1x45

During the second week of the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, fear and worry had already been expressed by some over the safety of Israeli competitors. Then, on September 5th, eight members of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Black September faction scaled the fence into the Olympic Village with assault rifles, pistols and grenades in-tow. Munich ’72 and Beyond tells the story of the Munich Massacre where eleven Israeli Olympic team members were taken hostage and subsequently executed.  This striking documentary retells the story with personal interviews from those related to the murdered athletes and documents the building of a memorial decades years later.
