The Olympic sports complex was constructed by Werner March. The stadium had a capacity of 110,000 spectators and included a special elevated reviewing area for Hitler and his political colleagues. We next viewed the Olympic Bell which has been placed outside the stadium. The bell had been placed outside the stadium. The bell had been cast in 1934 and contained the Olympic Rings, the German eagle, the Brandenburg Gate and 2 swastikas. Olaf had told us it was illegal to place swastikas on items in Germany now. After the war, these two swastikas had been partly filled in so that they were no longer complete swastikas.
