Garmisch-Partenkirchen's Uncomfortable Past German Ski Resort Represses Memory of 1936 Winter Olympics

Bavarian ski resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen is applying to co-host the 2018 Winter Olympics, which it last hosted in 1936 under the Nazi regime. Locals still have fond memories of the games, but they have little interest in dealing with the idyllic Alpine town's uncomfortable past.
