Yesterday was Adolf Hitler’s birthday. Well, it would have been if he was still alive, and after seeing these modelling shots of the dictator, we are seeing him in slightly different light.
Hitler did his best to get the photos banned and to be honest, we can understand why he felt they would cramp his style and rather macho dictator image he was trying to build up. And given it was his way or the highway back in the 1930’s, the photos were hidden from public view.
Now we can all enjoy the photos after they were recovered from a German fan magazine, although we really don’t know quite know how to feel about them.
One thing is for sure, the shorts and socks combo weren’t good 70 years ago and they are certainly not a good look now.
