Hitler was chosen as Time magazine's Man of the Year for 1938

Hitler was chosen as Time magazine's Man of the Year for 1938: "On January 2, 1939, Time Magazine published its annual Man of the Year issue. For the year 1938, Time had chosen Adolf Hitler as the man who 'for better or worse' (as Time founder Henry Luce expressed it) had most influenced events of the preceding year. The cover picture featured Hitler playing 'his hymn of hate in a desecrated cathedral while victims dangle on a St. Catherine's wheel and the Nazi hierarchy looks on.'"
