 The State Archive on Wednesday released 45 documents pertaining to the 1972 Munich Massacre of 11 Israeli Olympians, including one in which then Mossad head Zvi Zamir complained that the German police "didn't make even a minimal effort to save human lives."

The documents were released to mark 40 years since the massacre, which took place on the night between September 5-6, 1972.

The documents released chronicle the drama and its immediate aftermath through foreign ministry cables, minutes of cabinet meetings, minutes of meetings of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee from the period, and official correspondence between Israeli and German officials.

Some of the documents have been edited to protect highly classified information.
