Item description for Historic Site by Rainer Rother, Thea Vignau-Wilberg, Georg Bocskay, Joris Hoefnagel, J. Paul Getty Museum , Yuki Ameda, Glenn Barr & Kevin Nowlan...

The Berlin Olympic Stadium opened to the public in 1936, a unique combination of sports facility, military parade ground and National Socialist party showplace. From the site's beginnings as a racecourse through its history as the Reichssportfeld, up to the redesign that will make it once again the focus of public attention on the occasion of the 2006 FIFA World Cup football championship, Historic Site traces the history of the Olympic grounds, examining each stage in their building and history. Three essays reflect on themes irrevocably linked to the site: the significance of the 1936 Olympic Games for the National Socialists; the way in which the "commemoration of heroes" developed following the First World War; and the site's international architectural context. This is a richly illustrated guide to an iconic structure and the changes that have come upon it, indicative--now as in previous generations--of the changes throughout the country and the region.
