A Minute for Munich

As you are aware, there have been a number of campaigns urging the IOC to hold a minutes’ silence during the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics. Unfortunately the IOC has decided against this commemoration. So, TheZionist Federationis inviting you to join us in remembering the 11 murdered Israeli Athletes.

 On the morning of the Opening Ceremony, we are asking people everywhere to stop for one minute and stand in silence as a personal tribute to those who lost their lives in the 1972 Munich Massacre. Wherever you may be and whatever you may be doing, please join us and stand in silence for one minute in silence as we remember.

 We will also be holding a short memorial service that will be streamed live via a webcast from 10.45am and will include senior communal figures. You will be able to view this at www.zionist.org.uk

 If you are part of an organisation, email minutesilence@zfuk.org to see how you can get involved.

Thanking you in advance.

Executive Director
