‘be Diplomatic’, Warning to German Sports Bodies

“The commandment of the present hour is to be very diplomatic in the handling of the Aryan question in reference to German sport” is the advice given to the convention of German sports associations by Reich’s Commissar #on Tschammerosten.

“Germany must consider the effects abroad, especially since sport is an international matter and the single highest aim is to have, under all circumstances, the 1936 Olympics at Berlin,” he said.

The admonition of the Reich’s Commissar is believed due to the criticism of Nazi policies at the meeting of the International Olympics Committee in Vienna on the score of exclusion of Jews from sport activities.
