After Munich

On September 5th 1972, the tenth day of the Munich Olympics, Palestinian terrorist group Black September stormed the Israeli athletes’ quarters. Eleven were taken hostage. Eleven killed. The world saw it all live on television.

Four women were directly impacted that day: An athlete, a widow, and two undercover agents. Their lives transformed by the trauma. But they weren’t the only ones. After Munich, the world’s relationship to terrorism changed. It became personal.
