Photographs that Adolf Hitler wanted destroyed show the half-crazed Fuhrer rehearsing his persuasive hate filled speeches.

Published in photographer Heinrich Hoffman’s memoir, the behind the scenes photos show the dictator rehearsing emphatic gestures while listening to recordings of his speeches.

The photographs, which were reportedly taken in 1925 according The Huffington Post, were taken at Hitler’s request.

The future dictator wanted to see himself in action so that he could refine his orating technique.

The pictures show Hitler wildly gesticulating and pointing toward imagined crowds.

However, after Hitler saw the pictures he asked that Hoffman destroy the negatives, not wanting them to be seen by the public.

Hoffman ignored the request and later published the pictures in his memoir, Hitler Was My Friend, which came out in 1955.

After their initial publication the photos were stored in Hoffmann’s studio until his arrest at the end of the war, whereupon they disappeared into various archives.

The images give a rare glimpse into genocidal ruler’s inner workings, exhibiting how he meticulously rehearsed his indoctrinating speeches long before he became the Furer.
