Product Description
Students learn about when members of the Israeli team were taken hostage by Palestinian members of Black September and ultimately killed during the 1972 Olympics. They visit 2 websites and answer 17 questions of varying levels of difficulty (a mix of factual and opinion). The answers are included where appropriate.

Sample questions include:
--What were the demands of Black September and how did Israel respond?
--Explain what transpired 12 hours into the hostages being taken. You must write at least 3 different items.
--How did German police and figures from Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya try dealing with the Palestinians? Were these efforts successful? Why or why not?
--How do you think events could have turned out differently?
--What emotions can be felt today by looking at that first picture? Are they different than the emotions of someone watching this play out in 1972, why or why not?
--Do you think this tragedy would have happened no matter where the Olympics were being held that year? Why or why not?
--What sorts of changes do you think were made to future Olympics (or other large international events) as a result of this tragedy?
