For the first time, the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony honored the 11 murdered Israeli athletes from the 1972 Olympics.
49 years ago, at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and eventually killed by the Palestinian terrorist group “Black September.” This became known as the Munich Massacre.
We remember Ze’ev Friedman, Eliezer Halfin, Amitzur Shapira, Kehat Shorr, Mark Slavin, Andrei Spitzer, Yakov Springer, Yossef Romano, Yossef Gutfreund, Moshe Weinberg, and David Mark Berger.
May their memories be blessed. We will never forget.
