Anti-Nazi drawing published in the PM newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 1991.182.1

This is probably the most revealing, most pitiless picture of Adolf Hitler ever drawn. William Sharp sketched it in Germany in 1934, long before the world realized how much blood would be shed by Der Fuehrer. Sharp's caption for the picture says: "I saw this man three times in 1931 when he testified at the trial of three of his brutal Storm Troopers for killing an enemy of the Nazis. His eyes looked just like this."
