    Athletic meet in Germany.

  • Description

    Athletics Match - Germany. 1920s?

    Various shots of running races in progress. Parade of athletes walk across middle of stadium; all dressed in white shorts and shirts; some are young teenage boys. Aryan perfection etc. This part is like a preview of later Nazi youth rallies. All the boys walk along in groups and have emblems on their vests, signifying teams (?). One emblem looks like a 'copyright C'. Another seems to be an eagle (?).

    Shots of spectators in stands and leaving. Several shots of 1 runner.

    Ends w/ shot of this athlete at airport; next to aeroplane. Then plane taxiing.

    Athletics; sports; Weimar Republic.
