Memorial plaque for the victims of the attack
During the Olympic Games on September 5th, 1972 eight Palestinian terrorists entered the accommodations of the Olympic team of Israel and took eleven athletes hostage. The Olympic team was hosted in 31 Conollystrasse in the Olympic village. In the hostage taking and the subsequent rescue operation at military airport in Fürstenfeldbruck all eleven hostages, a German police officer and five terrorists died. The Olympic Games were paused for one day and a remembrance was held to commemorate the victims. The Olympic Games continued afterwards – the government of Israel had agreed to it – to set a sign against terrorism. Today the attack is remembered at different places within Olympiapark.
