The families of 11 Israeli athletes killed after being taken hostage by Palestinian gunmen at the 1972 Munich Olympics said they were outraged at a 6-million-mark compensation offer made by a German official. “Have you heard of a connotation worse than six million marks?” said Ilana Romano. Romano, whose husband, Yosef, was one of the victims, said, “We want a symbolic amount of 11 million plus legal costs. Eleven, because it was 11 sportsmen.”
