1936 Berlin Olympics: The Nazi Games, with Guest Speaker. David E. Jones
Today we welcome back speaker David Jones, for his virtual program, titled 1936 Berlin Olympics: The Nazi Games. The 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin are notorious for the tightly controlled image the Nazis presented to the world.
