BERLIN 1936: SIXTEEN DAYS IN AUGUST

Synopsis

For sixteen days in the summer of 1936, the world’s attention turned to Berlin as it hosted the Olympic Games. During the sporting events the dictatorship was partially put on hold. Here, seen through the eyes of a cast of characters – Nazi leaders and foreign diplomats, athletes and journalists, nightclub owners and jazz musicians - is a last glimpse of the vibrant and diverse life in Berlin in the 1920s and 30s that the Nazis aimed to destroy.
