Berlin's forgotten relic
The Olympic Village for the XI. Olympic Games in 1936 was built in Elstal on the edge of Berlin under the murderous 'Nazi Regime’.
Its history is quite remarkable: living quarter and training ground for 4,000 athletes from 50 nations in summer 1936; infantry training facility and hospital during WWII; military camp for the Red Army of the Soviet Union for nearly 50 years.
Today it is an almost forgotten relic, a ‘Lost Place’ that has fallen into disrepair and remains mysterious and spooky.
