The Nazi Olympics: Berlin, 1936

by Susan D.  Bachrach

Published by Little, Brown, 2000
128 pages
ISBN: 0-316-07086-6

Ages 11 - 16

Bachrach explores the uses of the 1936 Olympics in Berlin by the Nazi regime for the purposes of propaganda. Her absorbing narrative is illustrated with archival photographs, reproductions of posters and newspaper articles, maps, and boxed information about athletes and others significant in this particular realm of sports history. Ethical dilemmas confronting specific athletes are explored, as is the fact that varying amounts of reliable information were available to one and all during those complex times. Based on an exhibit mounted in 1996 at the United States Holocaust Museum on which the author worked as an historian. CCBC categories: Historical People, Places, and Events.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
