There's this anecdote where Heidegger praises Hitler's hands to Jaspers.
When Jaspers at the dinner table was to ask, “How shall a person as uneducated as Hitler rule Germany?” Heidegger replied, “Education does not matter. You should just see his wonderful hands!”
According to a footnote in Stranger from Abroad, he was referring to this picture.
