E14: Munich Massacre Pt. 1: Olympic Tragedy

The Olympics are an event that is supposed to unite countries together, however that wasn’t the case during the 1972 Games in Munich, Germany. Eleven Israeli athletes, coaches, and Olympic officials were held hostage by eight commandos from the Palestinian terrorist group known as Black September. It brought the Olympics to a halt, and focused the world’s attention both on the capital of the German state of Bavaria and on the Palestinian revolutionary movement.
