Overview

The Swiss were well-prepared to bring the Olympic Winter Games to the famous winter resort of St. Moritz in 1928. But there was one political cloud that confronted the organizers. Since World War I, Germany had not been invited to the Olympic Games, but the IOC felt the 1928 St. Moritz Games would be the right time for Germany to re-enter the Olympic arena. But this was still greeted with hostility by the other nations, and the Belgian Olympic Committee actually protested German admission to the 1928 Olympic Winter Games. These would also be the first Olympic Games at which IOC President [Henri de Baillet-Latour] would preside, having replaced Baron de Coubertin in 1925.
