Berlin was selected for the 1936 Olympic Games prior to Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. Hitler originally eschewed the idea of hosting the games but soon realized the competition could be exploited for propaganda purposes, as the exhibit recounts. “As we enter the 2016 Olympic year, we wanted to remind the public of what can happen when sport is subverted for political reasons and why race and religion should never be a reason to exclude someone from sport,” said Stark Center Director Jan Todd.
