Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

The U.S. Holocaust Museum has just opened an exhibit about the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, when Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler used the international sporting event to aggrandize his racist regime, with the full cooperation of Olympic officials from the U.S. Last week, a group of athletes who competed in the 1936 Olympics spoke at the museum. Their stories have become legend to some, but are mostly unknown to younger generations.

Guests: MARC FISHER, FORMER BERLIN BUREAU CHIEF OF THE WASHINGTON POST, AUTHOR OF AFTER THE WALL: GERMANY, GERMANS AND THE BURDEN OF HISTORY.

MARGARET (GRETA) LAMBERT, JEWISH TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPION DENIED A PLACE ON THE GERMAN TEAM.

JOHN WOODRUFF, GOLD MEDALIST.

MARTY GLICKMAN, AMERICAN JEWISH ATHLETE REMOVED BY COACHES AT THE LAST MINUTE
