Hitler in Color

You know all about it from History Class in high school or because of programs on the History Network, but it's doubtful you've seen it in it's original color.

Hugo Jaeger was the closest photographer in history to Adolf Hitler. He took thousands of photos of the Fuhrer and some of the slides were in color. But when Germany fell during the end of World War II Jaeger decided hide the slides so his connection to the Nazis was not so clear.

He buried the slides and did not touch them until years later. Here are some of his originals:

speaks at the Burgerbraukeller in Munich, Germany, November 8 or 9, 1938.

Julius Schaub, Hitler's personal aide, at Party reception; the Fuhrerbau on Feb. 25, 1939.
