Maccabi soldiers : Yosef Yekutieli, Frederick Kisch, and Mandate Palestine's connections to the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games / San Charles Haddad

Haddad, Charles San

Within this article the author emphasizes the role of Yekutieli, the Honorary Secretary of the Palestine Olympic Committee, in establishing several national sport governing bodies during the British Mandate for Palestine. He also touches on how he organized the First Maccabiad in 1932, co-founded the Western Asiatic Games Confederation, and sent a delegation from Palestine to the First Western Asiatic Games in New Delhi, India. Yekutieli’s actions occur in the shadow of the rising NSDAP in Germany and Mandate Palestine, thereby taking on a special urgency after 1933. This is the first in a series of articles on the theme.
