Questions of Propriety: J. Sigfrid Edstrom, Anti-Semitism, And the 1936 Berlin Olympics (Essay)

Olympika: The International Journal of Olympic Studies 2007, Annual, 16

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The aim of this article is to analyze Sigfrid Edstrom's view of the so-called 'Jewish question' and the 1936 Berlin Olympics, from several perspectives. It has been noted that Edstrom was never in any doubt that it was right to arrange the Olympic Games in Berlin. He strove to ensure that the forces counselling a boycott of the Berlin Games were defeated. A question that is considerably more difficult to answer is whether Edstrom was an anti-semite. His correspondence most definitely demonstrates an anti-semitic side to his character. It can be noted that Edstrom was not subjected to criticism following World War II for having been compliant vis-a-vis the Nazis. Instead, he was elected to the most prestigious position in the world of sport--tPresident of the International Olympic Committee. **********
