The 85th Anniversary of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games  

Thank you for joining us for a dialogue between senior sporting officials in Israel and around the world, regarding the need to fight hatred, racism and anti-Semitism in sports and in society at large!

United Through Sports

This year will mark the 85th anniversary since the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. Now, more than ever, with Holocaust survivors succumbing to old age there is an added immediacy in remembering Europe’s darkest days.
Since the 1936 Olympic games were used to legitimize Nazi Germany’s racist and hateful ideology, it is only appropriate that we use the 85th anniversary to remember the event by promoting the unifying power of sports to build a better world.
On Tuesday, August 24th, senior members of the sporting world, both in Israel and worldwide, along with public leaders, diplomats, athletes, and other relevant stakeholders will convene to discuss the need for collaborative action to counter expressions of hatred, racism, and antisemitism in sports, and society at large.
