Munich 11 Memory Project


During the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were taken hostage and murdered. Join us in commemorating this horrific massacre by ensuring that the memory of this event endures and that the world never stays silent again.


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.

Join us in turning memory into meaning.
