Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit by Truus, Bob & Jan too! on Flickr.German postcard by Ross Verlag, Berlin, no. 24/4. Photo: Ufa. Publicity still for Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit/Ways to Strength and Beauty (Nicholas Kaufmann, Wilhelm Prager, 1925). Collection: Didier Hanson. 
The Ufa-production Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit/Ways to Strength and Beauty (1925) was the most popular and most important German Kulturfilm of the silent era. The action was an idealized, somewhat naïve approximation to health and beauty in conformity with nature. Today, the documentary is best known as the first film to feature Leni Riefenstahl.
