IOC's Refusal Won't Silence Son of Slain Israeli Athlete

Posted: Updated:

Guri Weinberg was one month old when his father, Moshe Weinberg, Israel's Olympic Wrestling coach said goodbye to Guri and his wife Mimi, and left for the Munich Olympics. He never returned. Moshe Weinberg and ten of his fellow-Israeli athletes would be shot, tortured, mutilated and murdered by the Palestinian Black September terrorists. For 40 years the families of the Munich 11 have tried and failed to get the International Olympic Committee to hold a Minute of Silence. The London Games could not find 60 seconds to help the families of the massacred Olympians to find closure.

Hear now, in his own words, Guri Weinberg, speak out.
