Wednesday, September 5, 1934

Daddy took us to school. I'm taking Shorthand, 2nd year Latin, English, Typing and History. Walked home with the girls.

Helene Bertha Amalie "Leni" Riefenstahl
(22 August 1902 – 8 September 2003)

A German film director, actress and dancer widely noted for her aesthetics and innovations as a filmmaker, Riefenstahl's most famous film was Triumph of the Will, a documentary film made at the 1934 Nuremberg congress of the National Socialist Party.

Riefenstahl's prominence in the Third Reich, along with her personal association with Adolf Hitler, destroyed her film career following Germany's defeat in World War II, after which she was arrested but released without any charges.
