this book!

The Olympische Sommerspiele 1972 were the first Olympic Games I could watch at the television. It was an important edition, not only for the incredible quality of the visualdesign created by OTL AICHER and his team Dept.XI, for the futuristic architecture of the Olympiapark designed by OTTO FREI, it was very important for the development and the modern urbanisation of the city of München, at that time, a city suffering the effects and post-effects of WWII.

münchen 1972

Olympic games are not always an athletic festival. In 1972 during the Olympische Sommerspiele 1972, eight Palestinian criminals, members of the terrorist group Black September, took eleven hostages, all members of the Israeli Olympic Team and killed them. One hostage was castrated and abused after he was shot!Take a moment and remember!
