Die Diktatur im Pausenmodus: Stadt und Spiele im Sommer 1936 Im Sommer 1936 steht Berlin ganz im Zeichen der Olympischen Spiele. Zehntausende strömen in die deutsche Hauptstadt, die die Nationalsozialisten in diesen sechzehn Tagen als weltoffene Metropole präsentieren wollen. Oliver Hilmes folgt prominenten und völlig unbekannten Personen, Deutschen und ausländischen Gästen durch die fiebrig-flirrende Zeit der Sommerspiele und verknüpft die Ereignisse dieser Tage kunstvoll zum Panorama einer Diktatur im Pausenmodus. Die »Juden verboten«-Schilder sind plötzlich verschwunden, statt des »Horst-Wessel-Lieds« klingen Swing-Töne durch die Straßen. Berlin scheint für kurze Zeit eine ganz normale europäische Großstadt zu sein, doch im Hintergrund arbeitet das NS-Regime weiter daran, die Unterdrückung zu perfektionieren und das Land in den Krieg zu treiben. In »Berlin 1936« erzählt Oliver Hilmes präzise, atmosphärisch dicht und mitreißend von Sportlern und Künstlern, Diplomaten und NS-Größen, Transvestiten und Prostituierten, Restaurantbesitzern und Nachtschwärmern, Berlinern und Touristen. Es sind Geschichten, die faszinieren und verstören, überraschen und bewegen. Es sind die Geschichten von Opfern und Tätern, Mitläufern und Zuschauern. Es ist die Geschichte eines einzigartigen Sommers.

Andrea Pirlo ist einer der besten Fußballer seiner Generation – ein Weltmeister und Champions-League-Sieger, talentierter Spielmacher und begnadeter Freistoßschütze. Dies ist seine Geschichte, die in seinen Worten erzählt wird. Geschrieben mit der Art Tiefgang und Humor, die man bei ihm, dem Präzisionsfußballer und Regisseur auf dem Spielfeld, nicht vermuten würde. Er schreibt über all die großen Namen – Lippi, Ancelotti, Conte, Seedorf, Buffon, Kaka, Nesta, Balotelli, Gattuso und Ronaldo – aus einer ganz neuen, bislang unbekannten Perspektive. So erzählt er zum Beispiel, wie Berlusconi am Piano sitzt und Witze erzählt oder wie Pirlo und Daniele de Rossi Nestas Zorn auf sich ziehen, indem sie mit ihm vor dem Halbfinale einer WM in einem Mietwagen durch die deutsche Landschaft gurken. Mit privaten und einzigartigen Einblicken in das Leben des Fußballgenies Pirlo ist dieses Buch ein Tribut an eines der größten Talente unserer Zeit, dessen letztes Kapitel noch lange nicht geschrieben ist.
