Germany’s Two Summer Olympics

Germany has hosted two Summer Olympics – 1936 and 1972. There was a stain on both athletic competitions. The 1936 Berlin Olympics was where Marty Glickman and Sam Stoller were denied an opportunity to run, and Gretel Bergman was not allowed on the German Olympic team because they were Jewish. It is the story how an American athlete Jesse Owners ruined Hitler’s coming out party. In 1972, the Munich Massacre was a terrorist attack in the Olympic Village. Come learn more from Evan Weiner during this virtual Zoom presentation.
