Adolf Hitler, arrived on June 24 for a rapid tour by car. He was accompanied by the German sculptor Arno Breker and by his chief architect, Albert Speer, both of whom had lived in Paris and guided his tour. He saw the Opera House and viewed the Eiffel Towerfrom the terrace of the Palace of Chaillot, paid homage at Napoleon's tomb, and visited the artist's quarter of Montmartre during his first and only visit to Paris.
The photo shocked the world when it appeared in several broadsheets a day later. People everywhere expected Hitler to proceed and conquer Britain.
