David Berger National Memorial

National Park Service, Ohio.

This site honors the memory of David Berger, an American citizen who was one of 11 Israeli athletes killed at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. David had no expectations of winning a medal but joined the Israeli weightlifting team to realize his dream - a dream which ended tragically. The Memorial is dedicated to his memory and the memory of the ten other athletes.


The David Berger National Memorial is located on the grounds of the Mandel Jewish Community Center of Cleveland.
