  1. >Seabrook urged the photographers to include as much detail as they could so that people around the world could follow his lead. “For those who may wish to hold Hex Hitler parties at home,” LIFE wrote, “Mr. Seabrook points out that a life-size image is unnecessary.” A small doll could easily be dressed up as Hitler, they explained, and could be picked up at any five-and-dime.

    >Hitler, of course, did not die in 1941. He would live on for three more years before killing himself in an underground bunker in Berlin on April 30, 1945.

    >William Seabrook’s own fate wouldn’t prove too different. A year after Hitler’s death, Seabrook killed himself with a fistful of pills in Rhinebeck, New York. He left behind, though, one of the strangest lives that any man has ever lived.
