Joseph Goebbels at a League of Nations conference in 1933 at the Carlton Hotel in Geneva, where he delivered his speech An Appeal to Nations, defending the Nazi seizure of power. German-born Alfred Eisenstaedt, later one of the founding photographers of LIFE, recalled that Goebbels smiled at him until he learned that Eisenstaedt was Jewish — a moment Eisenstaedt captured in this photo. Eisenstaedt later recalled, “He looked at me with hateful eyes and waited for me to wither. But I didn’t wither. If I have a camera in my hand, I don’t know fear.”
I am posting this for the story, not for the Goebbels. Just to be specific.
