Olympia 1936


"Peoples! Are the people´s guests, come in through the open gate!
Peace be with the international festivals! Honor should be the campaign slogan.
Young force wants to show courage, hot games of Olympia!
Your splendor price in deeds, pure goal: Olympia.

Pride and prosperity of many countries came here to fight hard;
all the fire that glowed, burns high and free.
Strength and spirit approaches with trepidation. Sacrifice Olympia!
Who may wear your laurels, fame sound of : Olympia?

As now all hearts beat in an upraised team,
should be in deed and in word, oath trustfully supremed.
Joyful win the champions, victory celebration Olympia!
Joy was still in a standstill, peace festival: Olympia.
Joyful win the champions, victory celebration Olympia!
German original lyrics:

„Völker! Seid des Volkes Gäste, kommt durchs offne Tor herein!
Friede sei dem Völkerfeste! Ehre soll der Kampfspruch sein.
Junge Kraft will Mut beweisen, heißes Spiel Olympia!
Deinen Glanz in Taten preisen, reines Ziel: Olympia.

Vieler Länder Stolz und Blüte kam zum Kampfesfest herbei;
alles Feuer, das da glühte, schlägt zusammen hoch und frei.
Kraft und Geist naht sich mit Zagen. Opfergang Olympia!
Wer darf deinen Lorbeer tragen, Ruhmesklang: Olympia?

Wie nun alle Herzen schlagen in erhobenem Verein,
soll in Taten und in Sagen Eidestreu das Höchste sein.
Freudvoll sollen Meister siegen, Siegesfest Olympia!
Freude sei noch im Erliegen, Friedensfest: Olympia.
Freudvoll sollen Meister siegen, Siegesfest Olympia!
Olympia! Olympia! Olympia!“

My Grandparents went to the 1936 Olympics and had a great time.
