The Olympic torch used for the 1936 Summer Olympic Games, held in Berlin.
The torch was made in steel in a modern minimalist design. The front of the torch bears the German eagle holding the olympic rings, while the platform is inscribed with the text “Organisations-Komitee für die XI. Olympiade Berlin 1936 Als Dank dem Träger”. The torch was designed by Walter Lemcke. The torch was carried from Olympia in Greece through to Berlin, visiting the capital cities of the countries it passed through, the first of the tradition of the torch relay in the modern Olympic Games. The games were highly politically charged, the last before the outbreak of WWII. The 1936 games were organized under the direction of the Nazi Party, under the guidance of Joseph Goebbels, with the intention of demonstrating German superiority on an international stage.
This torch is on loan to the Hellenic Museum as part of the ‘Flame of Olympia’ exhibition.
