Leni and Adolf

The May 11 1934 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contains a discussion with Leni Riefenstahl, the German film director and confidante of Adolf Hitler. The article was in two parts (I’ve broken the second part into two sections).

There was also a photograph of Ms. Riefenstahl:

Leni Riefenstahl (1902-2003) is now widely considered one of the greatest technical filmmakers of the 20th century, though her reputation is tarnished by her association with Hitler. After the war, she maintained that she knew nothing about the Holocaust, and she was never prosecuted for war crimes. But she was certainly an admirer of Hitler at the time of this article.

Hitler, of course, did not marry until near the end of his life, when he wed his mistress, Eva Braun.
