Opening of 1936 olympics

People need to study their history a little better… How about this exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum?

I have been hearing a lot of people grumbling that the Olympics shouldn’t be about politics. That may be, but as my friend Heather Dichter would say, the games have been about politics ever since the Baron de Coubertain decided to revive the ancient Olympic games. Not much has changed.
