Description
 
The 1936 German Olympics took place at a very critical time in the 20th century & were unusual in many respects. It was the first time that TV was used to broadcast a sporting event; the first real political Olympics threatened by several potential boycotts; & the most elaborate Olympics staged up to that time. The first torch run to light the Olympic flame was originated. The most important Olympic film ever produced covered the summer games. A Polish female sprinter was later found out to be a male. Downhill skiing was introduced to the winter games. Several athletes such as Jesse Owens & Sonja Henie would become household names throughout the world. Here is the story of the 1936 summer & winter Olympic games. Hundreds of b&w photos.
