The 1936 Summer Olympic Games, officially known as the Games of the XI Olympiad, was held in 1936 in Berlin, Germany.

Filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl was commissioned by the German Olympic Committee to film the Games. Her film, Olympia, introduced many of the techniques now common to the filming of sports.

The games were infamous for Adolf Hitler's attempts to make the games political and a celebration of the 'Aryan Race'
