Olympic officials badge
Before his rise to power, Hitler spoke passionately against the Olympics, denigrating the idea of the superior German race having to compete with lesser races. Yet, when he came to power, he saw it as a chance to win over the world, to show them, on German soil, how great his Nazi administration was at running the country, how happy the people were and how false the accusations against him were.
