Hitler's Alpine Headquarters
rare images from Hitlers hide out in Austria, these images where produced by theNazis to try and show what a nice chap he was!
Photo shows: Our Reich Chancellor Hitler on his morning outing in his Berchtesgadener Land.
The informal composition of this particular image suggests the idea that Hitler and the other members of the group are unaware they are being photographed. This is an early image, produced during the first year of Hitler’s chancellorship in 1933. The photograph bears absolutely no resemblance to other, well-orchestrated and totally professional propaganda images produced during the period. It is difficult to understand the reasoning behind allowing the production of what is, for want of a better term, a ‘dysfunctional’ image. As revealed on earlier pages and prior to Hitler being appointed Chancellor, we know that the Nazi Party were more than capable of producing quality propaganda images, so why release an image such as this into the public domain? Again close examination of the photograph seems to indicate that this image is a montage; a photographic marriage between the foreground and the background. German photographers were very skilled in such techniques.
The photograph was taken close to the Hochlenzer, a restaurant situated at 896 metres (2,939 feet) overlooking Berchtesgaden. Hitler made numerous visits to the Hochlenzer during the periods he spent on the Obersalzberg. One can still walk the same route through the forest to the restaurant.
