Sex, Hitler and the 1936 Olympics

Recommended Posts

I don't see any problems with publishing these short stories. Hitler's behaviour towards women has been an interesting story in itself. It involves suicide, suicide attempts, an extreme need to control etc..., maybe to much of a modern soap... (but thats the case with several of our famous (or infamous) historical characters once you go into their personal private life...).

I also find the story of Stanislawa (or should we say Stanislaw) Walasiewicz interesting since it touches many issues about sports and competition a bit further back in history. One issue is of course the physical check up that was done at this time as well as the use of drugs. How common was it? Did some countries use it in a more organized way? Many interesting question could be raised from an article like this. :blink:

I have a video on my site that includes an interview with Helen Stephens about this infamous proposal from Hitler. It also includes some useful archive footage.

Video 10mb

I have no problem with this being used with GCSE students 14-16 years old.
