The Olympic Stadium in Berlin
This is the Olympic Stadium in Berlin as it looks today. The stadium was built by the Nazi government for the 1936 Olympics held in Berlin. In my new book, Season of Iron, Frederika Eisenbaum has the unique opportunity, for a Jew, to attend the women's foil fencing match at the 1936 Olympics. The three medal winners were all part-Jewish.
