Back in Hitler’s stadium

The European Maccabi Games are underway in Berlin, part of which will be at a site built by the Nazis for the 1936 Olympics. The opening ceremony is later today, and you can access a stream at the website. Incidentally, if the games are anything like the website, they will be professional and slick.


Good luck to a certain Nathan Simpson, competing for Scotland in the badminton event!

And here’s hoping the games are a great success for all concerned.

[That sound you can hear in the background, is a certain Austrian born German politician, suffering in Hell. Good.]
