Admin History/Bio
Prague hosted the first ever European Maccabi Games in 1929, followed by Antwerp a year later. After a 30 year hiatus, the Jewish games finally returned to European soil as Copenhagen hosted the 1959 competition. The choice of the Austrian capital as the host city of 2011 was highly symbolic as it is the first time since World War II that Jewish athletes from all over Europe competed on the territory of the former German Reich.
Scope and Content
This item is a copy photograph and corresponding negative of Bill Engel, a sprinter from Oshawa, Ontario, at the Maccabi Games in Prague. Engel is pictured in the back row on the far left with four other men. The group are all wearing track and field clothing.
