Hitler steps out of crowd

Post by DD66 » 26 May 2018 18:57

.
Does anybody have a link to the video which shows (allegedly) Hitler stepping out from a crowd of people (probably in the 1920's)?

It doesn't exist in video, yes in a picture, but it's authenticity is doubted.

Thanks, but that's not the one I meant.

I've only ever seen it once before on a tv documentary. I've done web searches for it, but can't find it anywhere.
Just wondering if anyone knows if it's genuine. It looks a bit fake to me.

There's a very short clip of it at 0:55 on this video.

I don't think that young hitler had that hairstyle and mustache in 1914.

"I don't think that young hitler had that hairstyle and mustache in 1914."

An interesting statement, Cult Icon. Does anyone have any accepted photo(s) of Hitler taken prior to his enlistment in the Bavarian Army in 1914? While I don't recall any reference to his hairstyle prior to the one we know so well, period photos of him taken with his Army unit show him with a hat on and sporting a prominent mustache, which we understand he cut to the toothbrush size when he was recuperating from a gas attack in the hospital at war's end. (Some believe that he trimmed down his bold mustache during the war years in order to be able to wear a gas mask.) We do have photos of Hitler as a child and in the early years of his schooling, but the only rendering of Hitler as an adolescent that I know of is a pencil sketch of Hitler in profile at age 16 (1905) drawn by his schoolmate F. Sturmberger, and there we see that he had the beginning of a mustache even then.

Of further interest is that the photo above provided by von thoma supposedly shows Hitler in front of the Feldherrnhalle as he looked in 1914 at age 25, and there his toothbrush mustache is quite visible. But in the next years, during WWI, he is seen in a number of photos with a significantly larger mustache. I suppose this means that Hitler sported a full mustache when he left high school, but at some point in the next eight or nine years he cut that mustache down to toothbrush size, only to grow it again during the war years and then finally to cut it again at war's end. While facial hair is often a fad, it would be good if we had a photo or two of Hitler during his years between 1905 and 1914.

What evidence supports your conclusion?

I don't think this is 1914.
I think it's after WW1. Probably early 1920's.

I agree, DD66; the commentator on that YouTube clip suggests that that clip dated from 1919 and Hitler was at that demonstration as a member of the DAP.

It looks like some sort of Bavarian national celebration or demonstration. Assuming it was Hitler, is there any evidence he was a supporter of Bavarian exceptionalism?

Cheers,

Sid.
