Elizabeth "Lee" Miller, Lady Penrose (April 23, 1907 – July 21, 1977) soaks in Adolf Hitler’s bathtub, her muddy boots staining his bath mat, and an official portrait of the Fuehrer sits on the tub’s edge. She is pictured in Hitler’s Munich apartment on April 30, 1945, by fellow war correspondent David Scherman. “The key objects in the photograph are boots on Hitler’s bath mat, which when she arrived was pristine white, and when she left was covered with dirt from Dachau", he said.
Lee Miller was an American photographer, photojournalist, and fashion model in New York City in the 1920s. During the Second World War, she was a war correspondent for Vogue, covering events such as the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau.
