Building in the Olympic Park, which since September 2017 commemorates the attack of the terrorist group "Black September" at the 20th Olympic Games in 1972.
The memorial shows on 12 panels the biographies of the 12 victims, who lost their lives on September 5th and 6th 1972 due to the Palestinian terror group "Black September".

In addition to the 12 panels, the memorial shows original sound, image and video recordings on large screens as well as information on the background of the terrorist attack.


The building was opened in 2017 by Frank-Walter Steinmeier and the Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and has since then commemorated the victims of the 1972 attack with a view of the Olympic Village.
