Inside the ‘unfortunate and tragic’ life of the man who rode with Adolf Hitler to the 1936 Olympic Games
By MARK LUCASMAN New York City’s oldest and most storied newspaper has been at the center of a scandal over the years over the death of a journalist who went to the games in 1936.
The Times was in the news again recently when it reported that a Times reporter who was on assignment for the paper’s parent company for the day that Adolf Hitler, the Nazi leader, died had been arrested for questioning in the Dominican Republic.
The arrest came just days after a Times staffer was found dead in a hotel room.
According to the Times’ website, the reporter had worked for the newspaper for 25 years.
In an interview with The Associated Press, the Times said it is “aware of the allegation that the reporter has been arrested.”
The Times said in a statement that it has no comment beyond the statement it published Thursday: “We have no further comment at this time.”
The Associated, which reported the arrest, said it had spoken to a witness who had worked in the Times office in New York and who described a meeting in which the journalist told the Times that he had met with the man in the hotel room, according to a copy of the interview obtained by the AP.
The witness, who was not named in the AP report, said the reporter was “very upset” and “he was very angry” that he was not able to find the man.
“He was upset because he was very close to the death,” the witness said.
“The reporter was very upset and upset about the arrest.”
The man, who is not identified by name because he has not been charged, said he was told by the Times employee who had known the journalist that the journalist had been “sick.”
“I don’t know why they did that,” the man told the AP, who asked not to be identified.
The man also said he spoke with a Times employee at the New York Times headquarters who said the newspaper had been aware of the arrest and that the paper had “not done anything wrong.”
The story broke when a reporter was caught in a traffic jam during a trip to the Olympic games, which were scheduled to begin the following day.
In the aftermath of the crash, the Associated said that a passenger was taken into custody after he was later found in a motel room.
The reporter who worked for The Times told the newspaper that he believed that the person arrested in the accident was a former employee of the newspaper.
The newspaper has not commented on the case.
The AP reported that the Times has not apologized or offered any compensation to the reporter, who worked on the front line of the Nazi dictatorship.
The Associated has published a book about the trip to Mexico, “A Dangerous Ride,” which also included interviews with several witnesses to the incident.
