The file : origins of the Munich Massacre / San Charles Haddad

Haddad, Charles San

Edited by Post Hill Press. New York - 2020

This book narrates the previously untold history of a Palestine Olympic Committee recognized before the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. It sheds light on some of the darkest events in sport history, exposing secretive relationships behind the doors of the Jerusalem YMCA, Nazi agitation arrests, internments, and other intrigue in the complicated history of Israeli and Palestinian sport. “The file” breaks new ground at the intersection of sport and politics-illuminating the hope, tension, and horror of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, the creation of the State of Israel and the Palestinian refugees, and the resulting guerrilla attack at the Olympics in Munich in 1972 – and reveals a handful of heroes whose impact on athletes and international sport competitions is still felt today.
