If you would not know the man in the picture you would think that it was a loving family man, doting on his daughter.
However since we know the man is Joseph Goebbels, the dynamic of this picture changes.
Goebbels did portray himself as a good family man and a loving father, but clearly he had no comprehension what constitutes a good parent.
The job of a father,or mother for that matter, is to look after the well being of their children and provide them with a safe home. The child’s needs,health and safety is what takes priority over everything and everyone else.
But both Joseph Goebbels and his wife failed in this. Their priority was the Nazi regime. So sick and twisted were they that they judged their children by their own(Joseph and Magda’s )standards.
Rather then ensuring their children would be safe and no harm would come to them, they decided to kill them, even though they had plenty of opportunities to smuggle their kids out of Berlin.
Both parents were to blame but since Joseph was the head of the family and one of Germany’s most powerful men it makes him nothing more than a failed Father.
