The David Berger Memorial Sculpture Near Cleveland Has An Incredible Story To Tell
Historic recurrence is a theme that you may have learned about over the years… it essentially means that history repeats itself. We’ve seen it time and time again as kingdoms have risen and fallen. We must learn about history, good and bad, to ensure we as humans don’t make the same mistakes. Today we are going to take a look back at the most infamous event in Olympic history, in which a Cleveland-born Olympic athlete and 10 other souls were lost too soon. This article will merely provide a brief overview of the tragic event and will keep the grimmer details of the heartbreaking situation to a minimum, but you are encouraged to dig more into this historic event… lest we forget.
The Munich Massacre claimed the lives of several gifted individuals, including one Cleveland-born Olympic athlete, in an event that was covered heavily by the news.

You can learn more about the sculpture, the tragedy, and the people involved in it on the National Parks Service website.
