Very Rare Early Adolf Hitler Photo By Hoffman Certified. This is a very rare version of this photo by Heinrich Hoffman Hitler’s personal photographer. This version was published as a post card. The image shows Hitler at his mountain retreat The Berghof with a little girl who would come to visit and she was his favorite child visitor, she turned out to Jewish. It shows him as he embraces Rosa Bernile Nienau in 1933, at his mountainside retreat. These “children” images was deployed as propaganda at a time when the Nazi leader was being presented to the world as a kindly figure. Research showed Hitler became aware of the girl’s Jewish heritage, but chose to ignore it. Nienau, who was nearly 6 years old when the photo was taken, died of polio in 1943. According to James Wilson’s book, Hitler’s Alpine Headquarters, one of Hitler’s henchmen discovered the young girl’s roots and forbade her and her mother from visiting the retreat. But Hitler wasn’t told, and after a while, Hitler wondered what happened to his favorite child. Eventually, he learned she’d been blacklisted from the property and he was not happy, the book said. the photo is clear and excellent. It has Hoffman’s name on the back .
