  1. Olympiastadion München – Terri and I were there in 1972 for the memorial service honoring the slain Israeli athletes. The stadium was filled to capacity, yet you could hear a pin drop. The foreboding silence told the story that unforgettable day. A fabulous facility in both architecture and function, yet filled with sorrowful memories.

    1. Oh Bill, that adds a layer to the story. Must have been a powerful moment in life. The facility still looks incredible in this day and age. The Architecture is really something special.

      1. Thanks, Bob. It was definitely a powerful moment that we will never forget. I have some photos (actually 35mm slides taken with a Minolta SRT-101) of that day. Would you be interested in posting a few for comparison (Then and Now)? I can put them in a shared DropBox, or however you suggest. Just let me know.
