In June 1937 Adolf Hitler and his propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, visited the filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl at her villa in Berlin, probably to lend public support to Olympia, her film of the 1936 Summer Games. Hitler’s longtime personal photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, shot photographs of the summit, and the resulting prints were distributed worldwide. In one print from the series, later dis-covered in Hoffmann’s archives, Goebbels has been carefully retouched out of the picture. German authorities may have felt that his appearance in Riefenstahl’s home would feed rumors that he and the filmmaker were having an affair. Or perhaps the newspaper for which this print was intended wished to show Riefenstahl and her family in Hitler’s company alone.
