Down in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 14, under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, senior Brazilian officials and Israeli sports representatives joined in commemorating the 11 Israeli victims of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre.

As JTA noted, “Unlike previous Olympic commemorations dealing with the 1972 massacre, Sunday’s event was entirely devoted to the murdered Israelis. A previous homage was held Aug. 4 at a memorial site in the Olympic Village, where not only the Israelis were honored but also four others who were killed during Olympic Games.”
