Recipient's List: Deutsche Olympia-Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse

Recommended Posts

The purpose of this thread is to establish the 767 recipients of the German Olympic Decoration 1st Class. It is an interesting decoration as it was awarded to civilian and military personnel alike. The decoration was designed by Prof. Waldemar Raemisch.

Here is an extract from the English translation of Herr Dr. Heinrich Doehle's 1943 'Die Auszeichnungen des Groβdeutschen Reichs', regarding Das Deutsche Olympia-Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse:

"The XI Olympic Games were held in Berlin during the summer of 1936 and the Olympic Winter Games held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen during February 1936. Hitler established on February 4, 1936 the statutes creating the German Olympic Merit Decoration. The decoration is awarded through the recommendation of the Ministry of the Interior."
 
"The 1st Class was awarded for outstanding leadership in the organisation of the games. The Olympic decorations and medals were awarded to Germans and foreign nationals."
