Olympia 1936 (Book 2 of 2-volume set) (Die Olympischen Spiele 1936 in Berlin und Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Band II). This book commemorates the 1936 Berlin Olympics through text and photos. Printed in German, it has 165 numbered pages and is hardbound. It has results, including names and statistics, for all events. This volume, Band II (Book 2) covers the Olympics proper, while Band I (Book 1) covers the Winter Olympics. The black-and-white photos were actually collector cards published by a cigarette company, Cigaretten Bilderdienst Altona-Bahrenfeld. They came free with the purchase of cigarettes, and were then glued into the book. These collectible images were popular at the time, but usually showed animals or plants. Hitler used them to promote a political message. This is the original book with individual photos glued in, NOT a modern reprint.
