12. Eyes of Hate... Ochii urii

12. Eyes of Hate: Photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt, 1933
At a League of Nations conference in 1933, Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels remains seated while speaking to his interpreter. 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. Suddenly, "he looked at me with hateful eyes and waited for me to wither," the photographer recalled. "But I didn’t wither." Not only didn't he wither, he managed to take perhaps the most chilling portrait of pure evil to run in LIFE's pages.

Ochii urii: Fotografie realizata de Alfred Eisenstaedt, 1933
La o conferinta a Ligii natiunilor din 1933, Ministrul Propagandei naziste Joseph Goebbels a ramas asezat pe scaun in timp ce ii vorbea interpretului sau. Alfred Eisenstaedt, nascut in Germania, ulterior unul din fotografii fondatori ai revistei LIFE, isi aminteste ca Goebbels i-a zambit pana in momentul in care a aflat ca Eisenstaedt este evreu -- moment capturat de Eisenstaedt in aceasta fotografie. Deodata, "s-a uitat la mine cu ochii plini de ura si s-a astestat ca eu sa ma intimidez", isi reaminteste fotograful. "Insa eu nu m-am intimidat". Nu numai ca nu s-a intimidat, insa a reusit sa realizeze probabil cel mai glacial cadru ce infatiseaza adevarata rautate si care a fost publicat in revista LIFE.
