David Berger National Memorial honors the memory of David Mark Berger, a U.S. citizen who competed for Israel and was one of the 11 Israeli athletes killed in the Munich massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics. Berger was a 28-year-old weightlifter. The memorial is dedicated to his memory and to the memory of the ten other athletes whose lives were taken.
The black steel sculpture, a design of broken Olympic rings, is meant to symbolize the interruption of the Munich games by the tragic events, and the eleven segments on which the rings rest represent each athlete whose life was taken. The sculpture was fabricated by Romanian-born David E. Davis.
