On the occasion of the approaching 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Israeli delegation, the JMB is showing the film After Munich, which for the first time tells the story of the assassination and its aftermath from the point of view of four women who were directly affected by that day: athlete Esther Roth Shahamorov, widow Ankie Spitzer, who lost her husband to the assassination, and Mossad undercover agents Sylvia Raphael and Marianne Gladnikoff.

In this documentary by Canadian filmmaker Francine Zuckerman, the four women look back on the moment that changed their lives forever. In the process, the film tells of intrigue and secret identities, love and death, conflict and reconciliation, war and peace, and raises questions: What can people learn from the past and how does it affect the present? How can we move on after such a tragedy? What is the human price that people pay for war and terror?

The film will be followed by a discussion with director Francine Zuckerman.

Hebrew, German, Norwegian and English will be spoken in the film. The film will be shown in the original version with English subtitles. The conversation will be in English.

In cooperation with the Jewish Film Festival Berlin | Brandenburg and the Embassy of Canada.
