A bas-relief of marching Nazi troops, a Red Army mural – and a cellar where the cries of condemned torture victims once rang out in the night. If walls could speak, those within the Olympic Village of 1936 would have a host of dark tales to tell. This is where athletes from all over the world headed to take part in the most infamous Olympic Games in history - the so-called "Nazi Games". The 1936 Olympic Village, on the western edge of Berlin, lies forgotten. "It is a shame. But because it is inextricably bound up with Nazism, most Germans avoid it. It is a place that lives and breathes sportsmanship and history, side by side," says Sven Voege, who's in negotiations to rent out some of the village sites as exhibition rooms.
