IOC begged not to ‘repeat mistake of 1936 Berlin Games’ by letting Kim Jong-un’s North Korea host 2018 Winter Olympics

Human rights groups said it would “send the wrong message” and encourage tyrant Kim Jong-un’s nuclear ambitions. They added it would be a propaganda boost for the brutal regime, just like when Hitler was allowed to parade swastikas and goose-stepping storm troopers at the Berlin Olympics in 1936
