Olympia Zeitung Newspaper

Year: 1936
Decade: 1930s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Excellent bound collection containing the complete 15-issue run of “Olympia Zeitung”, the official newspaper of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, published as the games progressed from July 21 to August 4.

The paper contains articles mostly written in German; however, each photograph and illustration is captioned in English, German and French. The numerous illustrations depict every aspect of the games, including the opening and closing ceremonies, medal ceremonies, and every type of competition, as well as notable personages including German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler and American sprinter Jesse Owens. Owens is shown in photographs as well as depicted in several cartoons which exaggerate his African-American features.
