Nazi Germany color photos by Hugo Jaeger, the personal photographer of HitlerPictolic
These color photos were taken by Hugo Jaeger, the former personal photographer of Adolf Hitler. He traveled with the future Nazi leader in the years preceding his rule, and during the Second world war. Yeager became one of the first who began to remove the color.
In 1945, when the war was nearing its end, Hugo hid his photographs in a leather suitcase. During the inspection of American soldiers photographer was afraid of being arrested for pictures of the man I hated the whole world. However, when the soldiers opened the case, their attention was distracted by a bottle of cognac.
Yeager later posted all the pictures in 12 glass jars and buried them not far from Munich. In 1955, the photographer returned to the place, dug up the photos and put them in the Bank. In 1965, Jaeger sold them to LIFE magazine. These frames are really unique, they can see the whole historical era in color.
