Berlin ’36

Directed by: Kaspar Heidelbach
100 Minutes, 2009, Drama; Sports

In the days leading up to the 1936 Olympics, the fate of high jumper Gretel Bergmann hangs in the balance. She is among the world’s finest athletes—but she is also Jewish, undermining the German belief that the Aryan race is superior. The Germans scheme to replace her with another woman, not knowing that “she” holds an even worse secret that could humiliate the Nazis.
