Munich '72 and Beyond

Forty-four years ago today during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Palestinian terrorists attacked the Israeli Olympic team. What ensued was a hostage crisis and massacre that shocked the world and ended with eleven Israeli athletes and coaches being killed. However, as we learn in the new documentary, "Munich '72 and Beyond," the struggle faced by the victims’ family members and loved ones persisted for decades after the event.

"Munich ’72 and Beyond" delves deeper into the sequence of events which occurred during the terrorist attack and offers new revelations and emotional interviews, calling attention to details forgotten, ignored, or obscured for more than 40 years. The film gives a voice to the family members whose lives were forever changed that day, as they share their struggle to seek recognition and remembrance for the victims. The documentary culminates with a look at plans for a memorial on the grounds of the Munich Olympic Stadium honoring those who lost their lives that tragic day.

In an effort to educate the public about the tragedy and honor the lives of those lost, The Foundation for Global Sports Development (GSD) has made “Munich ’72 and Beyond” available to watch online for free during the week of September 5-10, 2016. Viewers may watch the 45-minute documentary at "Munich ’72 and Beyond" is directed by the award-winning filmmaker Stephen Crisman and produced by Dr. Steven Ungerleider and David Ulich, with Executive Producer Michael Cascio.
