How did the Nazis and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) turn a small sports event into the modern Olympics? The grand themes and controversial issues from the 1936 Berlin Games have continued to this day: monumentality, budget overruns, collusion with authoritarian regimes, corruption, and sometimes even bribery. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and new research, The Nazi Games: Berlin 1936 reveals how the Olympics, as we have come to know them, were shaped by the collaboration of interests between Hitler and ambitious Olympic planners. After initial distrust, both the IOC and the Nazis found common ground in turning the 1936 Games into the biggest Olympic show the world had ever seen.
