JEWS AND THE 1936 AND 1972 OLYMPICS • May 16

The 1936 and 1972 Olympics held in Germany were rife with social and political struggles. For the Jewish people and athletes, the plague of anti-Semitism, death and destruction created a conflict of emotions — fear, pride, shame, and more. William Rosenberg, PhD, Professor of Political Science at Drexel University, will compare and contrast both German Olympic Games and the lasting impact that these events had on the Jewish people and the greater world.
