In 1936, Gretel Bergmann was the world's greatest high-jumper. But Nazi Germany didn't allow her to take part in the Olympics 75 years ago, because she is Jewish. She later emigrated from Germany to the United States. Some years ago, the Olympic title was retroactively granted to her - many years too late. A portrait of this elderly athlete and her husband in New York.
