1936 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony Before 1936, the opening ceremonies for the Olympic Games were generally low-key. However, Nazi Germany turned them into a well choreographed event. All Olympic opening ceremonies since then have been influenced by what took place in Berlin in 1936.

Womens Gymnastics 1936 Fascinating footage of women's gymnastics from the 1936 Berlin Olympics. It looks like slow motion compared to what gymnastics became in the 1970s.

End of Benito Mussolini One day before Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker, Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini met a more public end. Mussolini and Clara Petacci, his mistress, were caught by communist partisans while trying to flee into Switzerland. On April 29, 1945, the two were shot to death in the small village of Giulino di Mezzegra. Their corpses were then taken to the Piazzale Loreto in Milan and strung up on meat hooks above a gas station. Crowds threw stones at the bodies for several days.

1972 Munich Olympic Massacre This edition of Time Magazine chronicled the worst incident in the history of the Olympic Games. On September 5, 1972 a radical terrorist group, Black September, got through ridiculously lax security at the athletes' village in Munich, West Germany simply by wearing track suits and acting like they belonged there. At 4:30 a.m. they took a group of 11 Israeli athletes, coaches, and officials hostage. Two Israelis were killed almost instantly for resisting. The other nine died at the airport where special German anti-terror police got into a gun battle with the terrorists. (One German policeman was killed too.) Up to that time, the 1972 Summer Olympics had been a splendid, friendly affair. The 'openness' of the Games and limited security was deliberate. The West German organizers wanted to erase the memories of the 'Nazified' 1936 Berlin Olympics. Since that awful day, Olympic Games security has become much more efficient and hugely expensive.

Jesse Owens 1936 Olympics This is an IOC profile of Jesse Owens, the famed American athlete, who won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. I've always loved the story about how Luz Long helped Owens qualify for the long jump finals.

Berlin Wall Comes Down 1989 On November 9, 1989, one of the major symbols of the Cold War came tumbling down: the infamous Berlin Wall. It had divided free West Berlin from communist East Germany since 1961. It was a great day for humanity!

THE FORGOTTEN VICTIMS OF WWII The Greatest Mass Rape in History One of this century's greatest crimes, and probably one of the greatest crimes against women in history, was the mass rape of the conquered women of Europe in 1945. The rapists were mainly Red Army soldiers, some of them non-White troops from the Far East and Central Asian Republics of the Soviet Union. As the Red Army advanced toward her in 1945, the city of Berlin had become a city virtually without men. Out of a civilian population of 2,700,000, 2,000,000 were women. Former Soviet war correspondent Natalya Gesse recalled: "The Russian soldiers were raping every German female from eight to 80... It was an army of rapists." The rape victims were not just Germans. Polish women also suffered. So did young Russian, Belorussian and Ukrainian women who had been sent back to Germany by the Wehrmacht for slave labor. As Author Antony Beevor put it, "If anything, the events of 1945 reveal how thin the veneer of civilization can be when there is little fear of retribution."

1936 Olympic Diving Here is 4.5 minutes of Olympic diving from the 1936 Berlin Summer Games shot and edited by Leni Riefenstahl, Germany's renowned film-maker. The camera angles, the cuts, the slow motion, and the tempo of the film are all decades ahead of their time. Little wonder why Riefenstahl was a favorite of Adolf Hitler.
