Ah, I thought it was referring to Hitler's own vacation photos. That would have been a lot different.

Going through the flickr album there are some neat photos, including this one that would make helicopter parents of today scream child abuse.

He didn't want to go on vacation, but his parents took him anyway.

Interesting how much "history" in unwitting moldering away in people's basement and attics.  A relative of mine recently put up a digitized collection of Snapshots my grandfather had taken as a young man in the 1920's, which wouldn't be all that interesting except at the time He was first the captain of the Scripps' yacht Ohio(later of the Scripps Oceanography Institute fame) when it was on a voyage to "discover" remote Pacific islands and then a Pilot on the Panama Canal (and at the Helm when the British warship  HMS Hood passed through the Canal (with exactly 1 1/2 feet of clearance on either side of the vessel)

The picture were incredibly fascinating, especially a lot of the "natives" who posed for him in the South Pacific, but even more so the stuff he didn;t realize he was capturing, the stuff in the background that gave clues to what life was really like back then even in "developed" in places like Manila or even Honolulu.

Amusingly, I even had a "is grandad a time traveler"? Moment when I saw a picture  where he had handwritten a reference to "Googling" something.  Thankfully my dad was able to supply the proper cultural context by sending me an email which said "Google "Barney Google" and you'll understand"

Of course these photos were found in Roanoke, VA. A city stuck in the 1940's and fearful of all minorities. Racism and segregation are alive and well here.

That was disappointing.  After reading the headline I was hoping for a Hitler photobomb.

If you look closely, you can see the first bullet went through his neck and hit Connally.

I found a photo of the current Manhattan skyline that almost exactly matches one of these photos taken from the exact same location, so I did a little bit of "Ghost Photo"(shop) of it.

Indeed. My sister has both a printer with a scanner, and all of our family photos and mementos which include my dad's from when he served on a battleship in WWII. He saved a few copies of the ship's newsletter as well as captain's orders (iirc something about lookouts not supposed to be reading during their watches) besides snapshots taken on various Pacific islands, such as Fiji (dad used to tell stories about the Fiji Islanders.)

I've been after trying to get my sister to scan everything and share it with me: I'd like to set up a website containing all the old navy stuff, for the historical interest and for the descendants of my dad's old shipmates. I should probably keep nagging sis about that.

So what's the big deal, exactly? In 1938, Hitler was pretty much just another world leader, visiting another world leader, and yes, it would have been interesting enough to take a vacation photo of. People aren't prescient to say "OMG! In a few years, this guy will be one of the biggest monsters in history! Won't this be a freaky picture then! Wow!"

The only shocking thing is that anyone seems to think this is shocking.
