During and After Pictures from the 1936 Berlin Olympics

The link is to a site that has many images of the infrastructure built for the 1936 Berlin Olympics.  The images show the conditions of the structures as they existed for the games and as they exist now.   The stadium has gone through a few phases of redevelopment, but most of the buildings only exist for the guided tour.  The bell from the original bell tower is now displayed in the Maifield and the Swastika was removed from the tower during the stadium’s denazification that occurred during its British occupation.  Other links from the main page show the changes in other cities before and after the Nazi party took power.  After WWI, Germany wanted to have a renaissance to reunite their country and looked to the Greeks for inspiration causing a lot of the buildings to have an ancient Greek influence.
