Olympic Games Berlin 1936

Memorabilias, Souvenirs and the golden Chain, Page 2

The Olympic symbols are intended as tokens of a great moment in the history of sport. They will recall participation and succes to the athletes and remind the visitors of the August days of 1936. The oak tree will grow to the honour of victory, as a living inspiration for future generations. The golden chains of office will be worn by the leaders of sport when the Olympic Bell summons the youth of the world to peaceful combat, and the book of honour will stand as a silent testimonial to all who participated in the Festival of 1936.
