Date Wed, Mar 29, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Duration   1h

The 1936 Olympic Games are a fundamental part of the narrative of the Holocaust. In the lead up to the games, public outcry against the actions of Nazi Germany led to consideration of a boycott of the games. Ultimately, the games went on as planned and with this, Jewish athletes worldwide were impacted. In this webinar, learn about the differing experiences of German-Jewish athletes Rudi Ball and Margaret Lambert (then known as Gretel Bergmann) through the use of testimony, the Timeline of the Holocaust, and other primary sources.

This webinar accompanies Echoes & Reflections Units 2 & 3: Antisemitism and Nazi Germany.
