The People's Olympics, in Barcelona, Spain was intended as a protest event against the 1936 Summer Olympics planned for Berlin during the period of Nazi rule. The newly-elected, left-wing Popular Front government in Spain decided to boycott the Berlin Olympics and host its own games following its election in February 1936. Invitations were made to the nations of the world. Buildings built for the 1929 World's Fair were supposed to be used for an Olympic Village. The games were scheduled to be held from 19 July to 26 July and would have therefore ended six days prior to the start of the Berlin games.
A total of 6,000 athletes from twenty-two nations registered for the games, including boxers Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack from Canada.
Many of the athletes were sent by trade unions, workers' clubs and associations, socialist and Communist parties, and other left-wing groups rather than by state-sponsored committees. Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack were sent with donations from the Canadian Jewish Congress.
With the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War just as the games were to begin, the alternate games were cancelled.
Scope and Content
Sammy Luftspring and Norman "Baby" Yack aboard the SS Alaunia en route to Barcelona and the People's Olympics.

Norman "Baby" Yack was born Benjamin Norman Yakubowitz in Toronto in 1915. As an amateur bantamweight boxer, Yack won over ninety of one hundred fights. In 1936, he opted out of competing in the Berlin Olympics as a protest to Nazi rule. Instead, he travelled to Barcelona with fellow Jewish boxer Sammy Luftspring to compete in the People's Olympics, which was cancelled at the last minute due to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. Later that year, Yack turned professional and, under the management of Steve Rocco, became the fourth ranked bantamweight in the world. Yack retired in Toronto. He died in 1987.
Harry Sniderman was a well-known Toronto sportsman. In 1936, Sniderman organized the financial backing from the Canadian Jewish Congress that allowed himself, Sammy Luftspring, and Norman "Baby" Yack to go to Barcelona to participate in the People's Olympics. His role at the event was to act as coach and organizer for the athletes. Later in life he was the owner of the Warwick Hotel, which was located at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas Street.
Scope and Content
Photograph of Sammy Luftspring, Harry Sniderman and Norman "Baby" Yack aboard the S.S. Alaunia as they travelled to Barcelona for the People's Olympics. They are dressed casually and are standing on the deck of the ship.
