- Politics in the Olympics: learning from Nazi Germany
- Muratovski, Gjoko
- The 1936 Olympics, hosted by Nazi Germany, took a sporting event designed to promote goodwill among nations, and turned it into a global propaganda platform. Host nations haven't looked back since. At the time, the modern Olympic movement was in its infancy. The Games were still far from being the global attraction they are today. But the legacy of these games can still be seen in the choreography and orchestration of the Olympiad today.
