Once again I am obsessed by the thought of Hitler’s two faces, and that for so long a time I did not see the second behind the first. It was only toward the end, during the last months, that I suddenly became aware of the duality; and, significantly, my insight was connected with an aesthetic observation: I discovered how ugly, how repellent and ill proportioned, Hitler’s face was. How could I have overlooked that for so many years?
