Oorlogscorrespondente Elisabeth “Lee” Miller neemt een bad in Hitler’s bad, in zijn verlaten appartement in Munchen, Prinzregentenplatz 16.
Deze foto werd genomen op April 1945, de dag dat Hitler zelfmoord pleegde.
Miller : “I was living in Hitler’s private apartment when his death was announced, midnight of Mayday. . . Well, alright, he was dead. He’d been an evil-machine-monster all these years, until I visited the places he made famous, talked to people who knew him, dug into backstairs gossip and ate and slept in his house. He became less fabulous and therefore more terrible, along with a little evidence of his having some almost human habits; like an ape who embarrasses and humbles you with his gestures, mirroring yourself in caricature.”
