A collection of 600-800 photographs taken by Hitler’s personal photographer has been sold at auction for close to $50,000.

Hoffmann was chosen by Hitler as his official photographer, with his images published as postage stamps, postcards, posters and picture books.

A large archive of Hoffmann’s photographs was seized by the United States government during the Allied occupation of Germany, and was held by the National Archives and Records Administration.

This collection of images, some of which have been digitally developed by the auction house, feature scenes including Hitler meeting Benito Mussolini, as well as going to an SS training camp.

    I have some photos of Hitler that my father has had since WWII. One is a set of five pictores showing his Army at Hitlers stadium in Nurenburg in a panoramic view when placed side by side. Would like to sell them. My phone number is 270 268 5012. One of the pictures is a Hitler Trading card from 1934. Only serious inquiries please.
