‘Police plan pre-emptive arrests to stop disruption at Olympics’
|Olympic flame in Berlin|
In July 1936 the Gestapo organised a round-up of asocials from the streets of Berlin and copies of the anti-Semitic Der Sturmer newspaper were withdrawn from display in the city. Anti-Jewish notices were removed from the city in an attempt to lower public displays of anti-semitism in preparation for the Olympics in August.
