This is a very good original set of the rare Third Reich German books DIE OLYMPISCHEN SPIELE 1936 IN BERLIN UND GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN (The Olympic Games 1936 in Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen - the title OLYMPIA 1936 appears on the covers) as published in 1936 by Cigaretten-Bilderdienst in Altona-Bahrenfeld, Germany. Cigaretten / Bilderdienst was a German tobacco company which published blank books and sets of photos for those books which they marketed as a promotion for the cigarettes and tobacco they produced. These are the two best-known books, volumes 13 and 14 in their series of books, and these two are devoted to the history of the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Olympic medal winners
American Jesse Owens and German athlete Luz Long
The 9-1/2 x 12-1/4 inch blue hardcover books contain a total of 296 pages and are illustrated with dozens and dozens of glossy pictures pasted in spaces that were left in the text.   These Nazi books have an excellent historical text and photo captions that cover the history of the Olympics as well as the 1936 Olympic Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the 1936 Olympic Summer Games in Berlin in amazing detail.

DIE OLYMPISCHEN SPIELE 1936 IN BERLIN UND GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN
Perhaps most amazing of all in light of the propaganda seen every day on the History Channel, BBC documentaries, British TV and movie productions, etc., etc., is the more than fair treatment given to American athlete Jesse Owens, and for that matter all the black and white American athletes who participated in these games. In a quick examination of the similar historical book published in the United States as a remembrance of the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, one finds almost no reference to the German teams or their individual athletes. In these 1936 German books, you will find many photos (virtually every one highly complimentary) of American athletes as individuals, as teams, with their new-found German friends, etc., etc. The friendship of American Jesse Owens and German athlete Luz Long is given premier space in these books.
Jesse Owens
Nazi swastikas
1936 black Olympic athletes
All the sports are covered from mens and ladies track and field through swimming and other water sports, boxing, wrestling, weight lifting, soccer, hockey, gymnastics, bike racing, shooting, riding, skiing, ski jumping, ice hockey, skating, sledding, etc. The history of the modern Olympics are covered from the first one in Athens in 1896 through each of the host cities. There are pictures of the competitor’s flags, 1936 Olympic posters, the Olympic Village, and Nazi Olympic officials.

The sets of black and white and full-color photos that Cigaretten-Bilderdienst provided to be pasted into these books are not actual photographs, but very high-quality halftone prints with white borders varnished in such a way that they look very much like actual black and white glossy photographs.
IMPORTANT:
We have an additional example of VOLUME I (Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936 and a preview of the Berlin Summer Olympics) available.
