gymnastics builder Niels Bukh

From Ollerup, Denmark.

This work features the first international biography of Niels Bukh (1880-1950), the charismatic founder of the special Danish school of modern gymnastics.

His team of young elite gymnasts traveled around the world demonstrating his gymnastics, and in Japan, his school is still attracting thousands of pupils.

Bukh’s private life and his fascination with the German Nazi party makes him a very controversial figure even fifty years after his death. It includes a DVD with 131 film clips in Danish, English, and Japanese. …


A gay Nazi collaborator. Sounds interesting.
