Nazis replaced Jewish female jumper with man at 1936 Olympics

From the strange stories file an insight into the conduct of the Nazis long before the War. The process of dehumanising and deligitimising the Jews can be clearly understood from within this article on a Jewish athlete at the 1936 Olympics - NAZIS REPLACED JEWISH FEMALE JUMPER WITH MAN AT 1936 OLYMPICS.

SHE showered alone, shaved her legs several times a day and had a gruff, deep voice. Now it is clear why: the Nazis conscripted a man in drag to replace a star Jewish high jumper before the Berlin 1936 Olympics.

We should never forget how the process begins.
