WWII photos of Nazi Germany - in colour!

Photography by Hugo Jaeger

Most of the photo documenting the Second World War were shot in grainy black & white film, which is why it may come as a surprise that Hitler and his Third Reich Germany were photographed in color, no doubt for propaganda purposes. Thanks to Hugo Jaeger's photography, we can witness the Nazi era in full Kodachrome colour - which really looks eerily surreal given the modernity of colour. In fact, they look like they came off the set of a movie! Be sure to check out Hugo Jaeger's colour photos of Nazi Germany at this link
