Europe's largest Jewish sporting event coming to Germany

More than 2,000 Jewish athletes from around the world will compete in 14th European Maccabiah Games at a site built by Nazis for 1936 Olympics.

Europe's largest Jewish sporting event is coming to Germany for the first time, bringing more than 2,000 Jewish athletes together from around the world to compete at a site constructed by the Nazis for the 1936 Olympics.

The decision to host the 14th European Maccabiah Games in Berlin was a difficult one, said organizer Alon Meyer, but should be seen as a "signal of reconciliation" 70 years after the end of World War II.

"There were a lot of people who said that they would never in their lives step again on German soil and we have to respect that," Meyer, the president of Maccabi Germany, told a group of foreign reporters on Monday.

But he said "we are a new generation ... and the question of guilt is long resolved."
