In Budapest a large exhibition is launched on the official Olympics in Berlin, 1936, and the planned Olimpiada Popular in Barcelona. The latter event was cancelled because of the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in July 1936. The IISH contributed to this exhibition with some hundred scanned documents.
