About the Munich Memory Project
This attack on Israeli innocents because they were Jews occurred in the very eyes of the world and too little was done to stop it, too little is still done to recall its significance. By encouraging people to remember, to recount the details and declare our opinions on why it is important to remember, we can glean immense lessons from each other and give respect to the men whose lives were stolen on that day.
The Munich Memory Project was created to harness the passion garnered throughout the world upon the murder of the members of the Israeli Team. Its aim is two-fold: to protect this memory for generations to come and to serve as an inspiration for others to learn from – for those around the world to collectively take pride in the accomplishments of fellow Jews.
Don’t let September 5th pass by like any other day.
The danger of indifference to terrorism is as relevant today as it was in 1972.
