August 1, 1936-Dated, BERLIN OLYMPICS TICKET OPENING CEREMONY "Erffnungsfeier", Very Fine.

Original Printed Ticket Stubb to the historic Opening Ceremonies of the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Measures about 4.25” x 2.75”. "Erffnungsfeier". Some surface thins from prior mounting on the printed “stadium” locations in blue on back as shown. The 1936 Summer Olympics was an international multi-sport event held in Berlin, Germany, under the Nazi Regime. The games were the first to be televised, and radio broadcasts reached forty-one countries. Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of Germany, saw the Games as an opportunity to promote his government and ideals of racial supremacy. After threats of boycotts from other nations, he decided to allow Jewish people and people of color to participate in the Olympics. Eighteen African American athletes participated in the games, including track and field star Jesse Owens. During the games, Owens won four gold medals in sprint and long jump events and became the most successful athlete to compete in Berlin. Owens managed to break or equal nine Olympic records while also setting three world records.
