1936 - Jesse Owens: Hero of the Olympic Games

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

Germany, Berlin, 03-08-1936


James Cleveland "Jesse" Owens was an American track and field athlete who specialized in the sprints and the long jump. He participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, where he achieved international fame by winning four gold medals: one each in the 100 meters, the 200 meters, the long jump, and as part of the 4x100 meter relay team. He was the most successful athlete at the 1936 Summer Olympics, a victory more poignant and often noted because Adolf Hitler had intended the 1936 games to showcase his Aryan ideals and prowess.

Sound Bite and conversation:

Riefenstahl, Leni

(director of the Olympic games, 1936) , speaking German:
-  "From the beginning on I didn’t want to make a totally realistic film, but a memorial to the spirit of the Olympic Games. So I had to create something that goes beyond sports. They always said that I make people look too nice. I did not create them, but God. "

Lochner, Robert

(American interpreter of the Olympic Games) , speaking German:
-  "Only if we look back we can realize how much the Olympic Games were used for propaganda purposes – starting with the crystal night in ’38, then later the horrible war. "

Owens Prather, Beverly

(Jesse Owens's daughter) , speaking English:
-  "The nicest moment for him was as he got the four medals. My father proved the world and himself that he was the best runner that time. Although he was not the representative of the “super-race” only a black, but a proud black... "

Lochner, Robert

(American interpreter of the Olympic Games) , speaking German:
-  "“By chance I was standing just close to where Hitler was, when the speaker announced that Jesse Owens had won the 100-metre sprint and had got the gold medal. At this Hitler angrily pushed back his chair, and stormed out past me with a very dark face.” "

Owens, Ruth

(Wife of Jesse Owens) , speaking English:
-  "The Germans adored Jesse. Whenever he entered the stadium, they chanted his name. He had a wonderful time there."

Owens, Ruth

(Wife of Jesse Owens) , speaking English:
-  "Jesse always said: I travel to Germany to run. I do not care about Hitler’s things, that is his business... "

Borgelt, Hans

(journalist in 1936, Olympic games) , speaking German:
-  "Life seemed to be better during the games, ,we thought that the situation was not that hopeless in the Third Reich. We thought that the Olympic Games would be the beginning of a better and more tolerant country. "

Hitler, Adolf

(german conductor) , speaking German:
-  "“And with this I open the Berlin Olympic Games.“ "

Riefenstahl, Leni

(director of the Olympic games, 1936) , speaking German:
-  "“Hitler in no way valued the whole thing. He had to be there on the first day officially. He didn’t even want to go into the stadium. On that day, three Germans won gold medals, but none of them expected to. The Germans were seen as without a chance. Then they said they had only won because the Fuhrer was there. After that he went to the stadium every day.“ "
