Eva Braun in blackface, taken in 1937.(Life)

Um. This won’t be topped for some time. Apologies to all other photos who wished to be considered today’s photo of the day. Pretty much like having to play Jeopardy! against Ken Jennings.

UPDATE: As Josh Lambert points out below, Braun is specifically dressed as Al Jolson in The Jazz Singer: That is, as a Jewish actor playing a cantor’s son. A truly unbeatable image.
