Luke Walker's curator insight, May 2, 2013 8:52 PM

This the infamous propaganda video created by Leni Riegenstahl at the behest of Adolf Hitler. It's goal was to inspire the thought that the Nazi party was legitimate and the right cause to follow for Germans living in the 1930s. 

Much of the imagery used, youth, happiness, family, heritage and culture, power, etc. are all equated with the Nazi Party.

What examples of this can you see?

Skip ahead to roughly 1:30:00 into the film to witness the big finale, the Nazi rally and Hitler's final speech of the film. It's very insightful, and truly haunting given what we know now about the time period decades later.

Make no mistake while I find this piece interesting from the perspective of a historian, I in no way support Nazi ideals.

OLYMPIA Part One: Festival of the Nations by Leni Riefenstahl (1936) Berlin Olympic Games

Olympia Part One: Festival of the Nations (1938 documentary)
Olympia 1. Teil - Fest der Völker
Directed by Leni Riefenstahl
After being commissioned by the 1936 Olympic Committee to create a feature film of the Berlin Olympics, Riefenstahl shot a documentary that celebrates the human body by combining the poetry of bodies in motion with close-ups of athletes in the heat of competition. Includes the marathon, men's diving, and American track star Jesse Owen's sprint races at the 1936 Olympic games. The production tends to glorify the young male body and, some say, expresses the Nazi attitude toward athletic prowess. Includes the lighting of the torch at the stadium and Adolf Hitler looking on in amazement as Jesse Owens wins an unprecedented four Gold Medals.
