THE OLYMPICS AND THE HOLOCAUST
This upcoming Olympic Games provides an opportunity to connect Holocaust history with this momentous event. In 1936, Nazi Germany hosted the Summer Olympic Games, promoting an image of a strong and unified nation while attempting to hide the regime’s targeting of Jews and Roma. In this webinar, delivered by Sheryl Ochayon Echoes & Reflections Director at Yad Vashem, we will tell stories of Nazi persecution against Jewish, LGBTQ+, Sinti, and other athletes—as well as acts of individual resistance—during the 1936 Berlin Games.
