Scott No. B75 on photo post card with the commemorative Berlin Olympic Stadium cancellation. Postally used and mailed 16 August 1936.
“The Olympic games held in Berlin in August 1936 afforded the Nazis a golden opportunity to impress the world with the achievements of the Third Reich, and they made the most of it. The signs ‘Juden unerwuenscht’ (Jews Not Welcome) were quietly hauled down from the shops, hotels, beer gardens and places of public entertainment, the persecution of the Jews and of the two Christian churches temporarily halted, and the country put on its best behavior.”
William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
