1936 Olympic Divers (Ghost Divers)  


The 1936 Summer Olympic Games (Wikipedia) were held in Berlin. During the games Adolf Hitler concealed his antisemitic and expansionist agenda. The games were a propaganda success for the Nazis, giving the world the impression Germany was peaceful and humanitarian,. Of course nothing could have been further from the truth.. The 1936 Games also saw the introduction of the Olympic torch relay. It was the first time a lighted torch was carried from Olympia to the site hosting the Olympic Games.
