Rare Book by Leni Riefenstahl for Sale
Every so often I decide it’s time to sell something so as to be able to buy other things. Today, I’m adding Leni Riefenstahl’s 1935 book Hinter den Kulissen des Reichparteitag-Films (“Behind the Scenes at the Reich Party Rally Film”), published in 1935. It is a soft-cover book of 104 pages with numerous photographs and what is purportedly Riefenstahl’s text (she later claimed she had not written it). It is rarely offered for sale.
It even has a slip inserted with a note from Adolf Hitler praising the book:
If you are interested in Riefenstahl, this is a book you will want to have. Take a look at my German Propaganda Book Shop for the details.
