SOME PICTURES HITLER DIDN'T WANT YOU TO SEE

Way back in 1925, photographer Heinrich Hoffman snapped the following pictures of the dictator rehearsing a couple of orating techniques. Unsurprisingly, upon seeing the photographs, Hitler requested they be destroyed. I guess it's kind of like when your friends tag you in gross photos on facebook. But there's always that one pal who insists 'trust me, no one cares about that nip slip, or how many chins you have when you're drunk.' Hoffman's that pal. The photographer ignored Hitler's requests and published the images in his 1955 memoir, 'Hitler Was My Friend'.

The extraordinary photographs document the genocidal ruler practising somewhat aggressive gestures whilst listening to recordings of his own speeches. Kind of like hairbrush singing in front of the mirror.
