Parents of victim of Munich attack bittersweet about film

Steven Spielberg's film "Munich" failed to portray the personalities of 11 Israeli Olympic team members killed in a 1972 terrorist attack but will keep their memory alive, the mother of a victim said Monday.

"I felt they almost lost sight of the athletes," said Dorothy Berger, 85, who saw the film in a private showing in suburban Cleveland with her husband, Benjamin, 88, and members of their immediate family.
