Berlin 36

Berlin 36, Kaspar Heidelbach

Berlin, 1936. The U.S. threatens to boycott the Olympic games because of Hitler’s racial policies. They insist that Nazi Germany allow Jews on their team, and specifically demand the participation of Jewish high jumper Gretel Bergmann (Karoline Herfurth), the leading high jumper of her time. The Nazis reluctantly decide to include her, but to make sure she doesn’t win a gold medal, they send in a rival, the unknown Marie Ketteler (1) (Sebastian Urzendowsky). Their coach, a rabid Nazi, uses every means in the book to undermine Gretel’s preparations. Yet she consistently outscores her other competitors, including Marie. (1) Name changed for rights of personality
