The German-American sculptor Waldemar Raemisch created mostly commodities such as lamps, reliefs, jewelries, vessels, cups, medals and coins, including the 50-Rentenpfennig-piece from 1923. He later devoted himself to more monumental works, and in 1936 he designed the âHaus des Deutschen Sportsâ in the Berlin Sports Forum.
Raemisch was also commissioned to design the Olympic insignia in 1936. He created a connection between the symbol of the city Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate and the symbol of the Olympic Games, the five intertwined rings. The design for the visitor badge was also designed by Raemisch, who again used the symbols of Berlin and the Olympics for this, but in the reverse order as the Olympic badges. The same badge in enlarged form was a car-use plaque that went on sale in a limited extent.
Raemisch was expelled from the Reich Chamber of Culture in 1937, because he was married to a Jew and in 1939 he immigrated to the United States, where he worked as a sculpture teacher in New York. He later designed the Olympic Order.
