Perhaps the most interesting comment was made by Riefenstahl herself: " It (Triumph des Willens) casts such a shadow over my life that death will be a blessed release."
A shadow indeed. When I first constructed this page, I never expected that a neo-Nazi site would link directly to it. If you did not come here from the page I posted in response, where their link still goes, you are invited to view it nonetheless.
Leni Riefenstahl died on 9 September 2003 at the age of 101.
(These links were all fully functional when this page was created. Should any problems emerge, please let me know!)
