10 of the Most Famous Photo Hoaxes Through History

Baby Adolf

In 1933, this rather terrifying photo of baby Hitler circulated through newspapers in England and America. Of course, it wasn’t really Hitler, and it wasn’t really an evil-looking baby. It was a doctored photo of a very cute 2-year-old named John May Warren, whose mother was very surprised to come across a picture of her son captioned as Adolf Hitler in 1938. The identity of the original hoaxer is still unknown.
