A different story about the olympics

Speaking of the Olympics—if you remember, if you are old enough, the attack on Jewish athletes in Munich in 1972 you will be shocked at the video that I am placing here.  It is the son of one of the athletes, in fact the wrestling coach. The first part is horrific, the last part, is  Guri Weinberg’s remembrances of his father. That part is beautiful.

I do remember when this horrible attack happened during the Olympics. That the Olympic officials have refused over and over to allow a moment of silence in their memory is shameful.
