They both kept diaries documenting, in words and pictures, their adventures, mishaps, and observations along the way. Diary excerpt from LEM: August 17, 1937 Innsbruck Munich "Hitler seems very popular here you cant help but like a dictator when you are in his own country as you hear so many wonderful things about him and really not too many bad things". Kennedy juggling in Nuremberg, Germany, 20 August 1937 Lems caption: Jugglin Jack.
Kennedy openly admired Nazi Germany when he toured the country as a young man, according to a new book marking the 50th anniversary of his historic 1963 visit to Cold War West Berlin. The views once held by one of Americas most esteemed presidents, who won Berlin's heart in 1963 when he declared Ich bin ein Berliner , are recorded in diaries and letters Kennedy wrote on three visits to Germany in 1937, 1939 and 1945. After visiting Hitlers bomb-damaged Bavarian Berghof residence and his Eagles Nest mountain retreat, Kennedy noted in his diary.Anyone who has visited these places can imagine how in a few years, Hitler will emerge from the hate that now surrounds him and come to be regarded as one of the most significant figures ever to have lived. He adds: There was something mysterious about the way he lived and died which will outlive him and continue to flourish. He was made of the stuff of legends.
