Munich, Germany–October 2011

A small scale project carried out in the course of a 5-day Magnum Photos workshop during the 2011 edition of Fotodoks photo festival in Munich, Germany. 

September 5, 1972. Israeli athletes and coaches were kidnapped. Failed rescue attempts led to a dramatic outcome: 11 people were killed. Today the former Olympic village accomodates students in rather rational dorms they call themselves "bunkalows".

They live with the ever dreadful backdrop of an event that occured when all the eyes in the world were drawn to Munchen.
