The Buckeberg Harvest Festival

Written by: George Chittenden : 12 Nov 2019

This photo of Adolf Hitler was taken on September 30th, 1934, at the Bückeberg Harvest Festival. The image was captured by Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler’s personal photographer and confidant. It’s believed that Hoffman took over two-million photos of his boss over the years, helping to feed the regime’s vast propaganda machine. Hoffmann’s influence stretched far beyond the realm of propaganda though.

As a photographer he was present during many of the key moments in the history of the Third Reich, and had intimate access to Hitler's inner circle and to Hitler himself. It was even Hoffmann who introduced Eva Braun to the Fuhrer, as she worked as his studio assistant. At the end of the war, Hoffmann was arrested by the US military, and was sentenced to imprisonment for Nazi profiteering. Hoffmann’s expertly rendered propaganda is proof of photography's power to move nations and plunge a world into war.
