LIFE Magazine's coverage of the 1938 presentation of the "Kraft durch Freude" ("Strength through Joy") Wagen, or KdF-Wagen, the readily-recognizable ancestor of the postwar Volkswagen "Beetle". The Strength through Joy program was a Nazi leisure organization operated by the German Labor Front, the logo of which is the swastika-in-gear insignia visible in the picture. Adolf Hitler is also visible at the podium.
One of the very last photos of Hitler taken in the garden of the underground bunker shortly before he committed suicide on April 30, 1945. This is the face of an old man, with all the fire gone from his eyes. He is wearing an old, worn out cap and the faint smile is there because he is meeting child soldiers fighting the Russians.
Romanian army POWs captured in Stalingrad, Nov 1942. The Soviets had little sympathy for German allies; they marked the Romanians particularly because of the savageries they had inflicted upon parts of the occupied USSR. Very few of these men returned home from Soviet camps.
Eva Braun pictured: I read the book, Grey Wolf. I read the newspaper article about the book including the comments. I will tell you this, I believe Dunstad and Williams extensively researched the subject and arrived at a logical conclusion; in my view more accurate than anything presented before. I never did accept that "famous picture" was Hitler. If he was burned why not beyond any possibility of recognition such as was done with Goebbels? It was planned subterfuge to evade capture.
