Skip to comments.Hitler's absurd pose in shorts is Mein Camp
Posted on 02/09/2012 6:00:41 AM PST by Daffynition
HISTORY knows him as an evil Nazi monster but Adolf Hitler was quite happy camping it up in the woods.
This rare archive picture shows him in lederhosen and knee-high socks lounging against a tree.
Unsurprisingly, the Fuhrer banned the snap and several taken by his personal photographer in the late 1920s calling it "beneath one's dignity". In another shot Hitler tilts his head and tries a mean and moody stare to camera, topped off by a military cap.
He never wore the hat again.

Mein cap ... Fuhrer's moody military pose
Don’t be stupid -
Be a smarty!
Come and join
The Nazi Party!
Uncle Dolphy thought he was quite photogenic (just like little Barry)...
It is a mistake to try and portray something that evil as human. Never forget his consequences.
Never underestimate the destructive power of narcissism.
LOL - I love that movie - The original “The Producers” with Zero Mostel and Gene wilder is on my top 10 of all time.
Trivia- Mel Brooks could not get anyone to say that line- so he did it himself, as a cameo appearance in the movie.
It is a mistake to try and portray something that evil as human. Never forget his consequences.True. But it's also important to keep in mind the Banality of Evil.
Hitler should have been a comedian. lol.
His head looks very flattened in relation to the rest of his body in that shorts photo. Was he really that disproportionate?
That said, I am still hoping that we dodged a bullet with Obama (his laziness saving us from what he could really destroy if he were up to it).
Except for the fact that he lacked that most important ingredient...a sense of humor.
Nothing seen can be unseen.
Yeah....and unlike 0bambi, Hitler fought in the first world war dodging real bullets.....unless you count living in Chicago.
True, he was only ever unintentionally funny. He would hate to be laughed at I bet. Probably kill everyone there.
No. I think you are seeing an artifact of some darkroom work. The image was probably dodged to get an even exposure. Most professional images of Hitler were retouched to produce the best possible presentation. Hitler disliked candid photos and casual snapshots of himself and had them supressed if anyone published them. All the "smiling Hitler with children and dogs" shots that you see in period publications were carefully staged and choreographed.
