Munich'72 and Beyond screening hosted by JFCS Holocaust CenterOn September 5, 1972, eight Palestinian terrorists broke into the living quarters of the Olympic Village in Munich, taking eleven Israeli athletes as hostages. The standoff lasted 20 hours and ended with a disastrous rescue attempt.

The film also addresses the long struggle for a permanent memorial for the slain athletes.

The 45-minute film will begin promptly at 6:15 pm. Following the screening Dr. Steven Ungerleider, producer of Munich ’72 and Beyond, will be in conversation with Morgan Blum Schneider, Director of Education at the JFCS Holocaust Center, discussing the film, trauma, and the power of memory.

Light refreshments will be served.

This event is free and open to the public.  It will sell out so please reserve your spot now.
