Film director Ingmar Bergman says he was enthralled by Adolf Hitler as a young man but that he underwent a change of heart after seeing photos of concentration camps, according to a forthcoming book. Bergman, 81, recounts his attraction to Nazism and its leader in a chapter of journalist Maria-Pia Boethius’ “Honor and Conscience,” which discusses whether Sweden was genuinely neutral in World War II.
