On 5 Sep­tember 1972, the Pales­tinian terrorist group Black Sep­tember stormed the quarters of the Israeli Olym­pic team at the Munich Games. The world watched live on tele­vision as eleven hostages were taken and later killed. To mark the approaching 50th anni­versary of the attack on the Israeli dele­gation, the Jewish Museum Berlin is screening the film After Munich, which for the first time tells the story of the assas­sination and its after­math from the per­spective of four women who were directly affected by the events of that day: the athlete Esther Roth Shaha­morov, the widow Ankie Spitzer, who lost her husband in the assas­sination, and Mossad under­cover agents Sylvia Raphael and Marianne Gladnikoff.

What is the human cost of war and terror?

In this docu­mentary by Canadian film­maker Francine Zucker­man, the four women look back on the moment that changed their lives forever. The film tells of intrigue and secret iden­tities, love and death, conflict and recon­ciliation, war and peace, and raises many questions. What can we learn from the past and how does it impact on the present? How can we move on after such a tragedy? What is the human cost of war and terror?

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film scholar Tobias Ebbrecht-Hart­mann and the director Francine Zucker­man.
