The discussion of the actual 1936 Olympics centers on the political uses made of them by Hitler and his propagandists, the spectacular performance of Jesse Owens notwithstanding (an eight-page color section of posters, both Nazi and anti-Nazi, convincingly demonstrates the relationship between athletic competition and propaganda in Hitler's Germany).
As the year of 1936 came closer and closer with the Olympics, people questioned whether the Olympics should be held in a country whose ideology ran counter to the ideals that inspired to the Games.
Rachbach places the Olympics in perspective of the political upheaval and the Nazi dictatorship that ensued, rather than relating just a history of the Olympics, or a rundown on record breakers and medallists (these details are included, but always admirably within the historical context).

My review of part one of the legendary documentary of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Olympia laid out a case that far from celebrating the Nazi doctrine of the Aryan "master race," the movie began with ancient non-Aryan Greeks, especially celebrated Japanese athletes, and showed African Americans, most notably Jesse Owens, dominating the track events.
Along with inventing the running of the torch from Mount Olympus to a modern Olympic stadium, and the opening stadium, Part One focuses on track events, particularly a lengthy pole-vaulting competition and Jesse Owens before during and after his Gold-Medal-winning performances.
The track events that are included in Part Two were won by a Korean (on the Japanese team) in the marathon and on the three African Americans who won all the medals in the decathlon.

One of the most brazen of these lies concerns the Olympic games of 1936, which were held in Berlin.
