Keep the Flame Alive

Jun 23, 2023

This week we're going back to the Munich 1972 Olympics and the massacre that happened there. Author Warren Perrin knew David Berger, the Israeli weightlifter, and he recently wrote a book called The Weight of History, the Power of Apology: Remembering Lifter David Berger 50 Years after the Munich Olympics to memorialize his friend and reflect on what it means to receive an apology for a devastating act.

Warren is co-founder of the Acadian Heritage & Culture Foundation which celebrates the French culture of Louisiana, and he has authored several books. You can follow him on Facebook.

Plus, we have one last Seoul 1988 sailing story, and news from TKFLASTAN, Paris 2024, and Milan-Cortina 2026. 

Want to hire TKFLASTANI bobsledder AJ Edelman? Check him out on LinkedIn.
