On the morning of September 5, 1972, eight Palestinian terrorists attacked the accommodation of Israeli athletes in Connollystraße in the Olympic Village in Munich. Moshe Muni Weinberg was shot dead immediately, and Yossef Romano succumbed to his bullet wounds later that day. Nine Israelis were taken hostage. On the night of September 6, David Berger, Ze'ev Friedman, Yossef Gutfreund, Eliezer Halfin, Amitzur Shapira, Kehat Schor, Mark Slavin, Andrei Spitzer, Yakov Springer, and German policeman Anton Fliegerbauer died in a disastrous attempt to free hostages by the Bavarian police in Fürstenfeldbruck. 
It was not until 50 years later that the German government could bring itself to pay adequate compensation and acknowledge its guilt. 
Twelve Months–Twelve Names portrays the victims and their biographies and documents twelve months of diverse public commemoration.
