Previously unseen official photographs of Hitler up for sale

Published on November 29th, 2010 | by Admin


Hundreds of never-before-seen official photographs of Adolf Hitler, taken by his personal photographer, are set to hit the auction block.

”We’ve got somewhere around 800 negatives and maybe 600 stills, some from these negatives and other stills that don’t have a negative that they were developed from,” he said.

”They were all taken by Hitler’s personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann, who was part of the Nazi propaganda machine.”

He said the photos are all pre-Second World War, with images captured at ”party days”, including one at Nuremburg in 1934.

There are also photographs of Paul von Hindenburg, president from 1925 until his death in 1934 when Hitler took over as head of state.

”There’s also images of a meeting with Mussolini in Munich and the winter and summmer Olympics of 1936 and also more sinister images of Hitler attending an SS officers training school,” Mr Humbert said.

”It’s all effectively the Nazi Party plotting and gaining strength and all the way Henrich Hoffmann is taking up close and personal pictures.

”These are not shots from the crowd, these are amazingly high resolution for the time stills in black and white.
