Reichssportfeld Berlin Question (Olympia 1936)

Post by SS-Researcher » 13 Nov 2003 18:52

Hi!
I am looking for pictures of a building on the Reichssportfeld, Berlin. It is known as the Turnhochschule and has two sculptures of Arno Breker at the entrance side. I have been searching for pictures of this building for months but didn't have success.
I'd be very thankful if anyone could submit a picture of this building. My special interest goes for the inscription on the top of the front side of the building.

Thank you VERY much in advance.

Best wishes
Florian

Florian,
Here is the image of an old postcard of the Reichssportfeld. I hope this helps. I have a few others, but I'll have to look for them. Please tell me if you need to see them too.
James :wink:

Florian is after the cursed writing on the wall again!! :o
Why is it so important?
I suppose i could task my friend to go and have a look
at it, but i'm 'fraid he won't be visiting Berlin until January 2004
at earliest, if even then. :?

It has no real historic importance. I just want to DAMN know what this writing is ;) ;) :D
I saw it in a documentary on TV months ago and have only been able to remember the last word, "Vollkommenheit". It was a pretty "cool" (or poetic) read, that's why I want to know it.
What even makes me want it more is that I have been unable to uncover the words yet ;) *grr*

Best wishes
Florian

Have you e-mailed any art and culture institutions concerning Berlin, such as Maybe you should give it a try and ask if they know anything
about the text at the Stadium?
