    I'm happy you enjoyed them! They are really fascinating... Pictures like these show the spirit of the time! It was easy for the German people to get fascinated by the appearance of the NSDAP! He played his cards very smart...

    I know these have been published before unlike my uncle said (he is not that into WW2 history so he is forgiven) but even if one of you hasn't seen a single picture it was worthy to post this thread!
    Color pictures of the prewar Germany aren't that often seen!

    Great color photos...which widens the scope of horror! It is a collectors dream seeing these in color detail....which would be very euphoric to see up close and in person....but I would be scared to death knowing what I know now about that time....and trying to focus on the collecting aspect,,,would make me pale white. Thanks also to Stephan for the extra link to photos..Great job Lizardking thanks for posting these. Regards Larry

    Hugo Jaeger took some 2,000 photographs. He began photographing Hitler in 1936 and was doing so until the Second World War ended in 1945. Jaeger also specialised in taking colour photographs of the Nazi propaganda spectacles, unlike Hitler's other personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann.

    As the war was drawing to a close in 1945, Jaeger hid the photographs in a leather suitcase. He then encountered American soldiers prompting fears of potential arrest and prosecution for carrying around so many images of such a wanted man. When the soldiers opened the case however, their attention was distracted by a bottle of cognac they found there, which they opened and shared with Jaeger.

    Jaeger buried the photographs inside 12 glass jars outside Munich. The photographer returned to the burial place over several years to ensure they were safe. He dug up all of the photographs ten years later in 1955, storing them in a bank vault. In 1965, Jaeger sold them to Life magazine.
