Den 11. olympiade - Berlin 1936. De danske avisers syn på sport og politik i 1930erne

Rasmus Camillo Jensen

Studenteropgave: Speciale


This masters-thesis will examine how the six big Danish newspapers Arbejderbladet, Berlingske Tidende, Fyns Tidende, Jyllands-Posten, Politiken and Social-Demokraten wrote about the 1936 Olympics. The 1936 Olympics was held in Berlin, Germany, in a time where the Nazis, with Adolf Hitler as its leader, had the power. The purpose of this masters-thesis is to examine whether the six chosen newspapers referred to Nazis legislation in their coverage of the Olympics, because this legislation had influence on the ability of the Jewish population to prepare and participate in the Berlin Olympics. Therefore it is this masters-thesis ambition to examine the attitude of the Danish newspapers toward sports and politics, and whether these concepts could be mixed in the coverage of the Olympics or not, because the attitude in this question is vital to the newspapers arguments. This masters-thesis concludes that there wasn't a big resistance towards the Olympics in the Danish newspapers and that the only resistance could be found in the newspapers with affiliation to political left-wing parties.
