Description - Olympic Gold 1936 by Michael Burgan

Jesse Owens gold-medal winning feats at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin struck a mighty propaganda blow against Adolf Hitler. The Nazi leader had planned to use the German games as a showcase of supposed Aryan superiority. Instead there was American black athlete Owens on the podium being photographed by Hitlers personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann. In addition Owens would figure prominently in the groundbreaking film Olympia by Hitlers favorite director Leni Riefenstahl. Photo and film captured Owens stunning success and revealed how wrong Hitler was in his beliefs.
