Brundage Says America Could Profit by Studying Nazi Germany

Download PDF for this date

Avery Brundage, chairman of the American Olympic Committee, told 20,000 cheering Americans of German descent last night that the American people could profit by a study of the Hitler regime.

Addressing a German Day rally at the Madison Square Garden on the same platform with German Ambassador Hans Luther and Mayor Karl Stroehlin of Stuttgart, Mr. Brundage urged Americans to learn from the Nazis how to “stamp out Communism” and “arrest the decline of patriotism.”
