The two images above are both of nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. Both were taken at a League of Nations conference in Geneva in September 1933 by photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt.

The difference between the two is that Goebbels has just been told that the man who is photographing him is Jewish. Goebbels led the hate campaign against Jews in Nazi Germany that eventually led to The Holocaust.
