The Fight for 1 Minute: Fulfilling Justice for the Munich 11

The Fight for 1 Minute: Fulfilling Justice for the Munich 11

Recorded LIVE on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 at 7:30 PM

In September 1972, 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were murdered by Palestinian terrorists in Munich, Germany. Not only did the International Olympic Committee fail to properly recognize the horrific tragedy, but the games proceeded as normal, as if nothing unusual ever occurred - and they have refused to recognize the Munich Massacre for 23 Olympic Games and counting. Ankie Spitzer, the wife of murdered Israeli Olympic coach, Andrei Spitzer, has spent the last 49 years advocating for 1 minute of silence to be held at an Olympic Games in memory of Israel’s slain athletes. During the 2021 Olympics in Toyko, she’ll join Virtual JCC, along with Joe Allen (Director of the documentary, There Was No Silence), and David Kirschtel (CEO, JCC Rockland), to discuss the ongoing struggle for justice, where we stand today in the fight for 1 minute of silence, and the role of the JCC movement in helping to finally fulfill the mission of this campaign.
