EXCLUSIVE - Hitler's Alpine Headquarters
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: Berchtesgaden children congratulate the Führer.
Whether Hitler is giving the apples or receiving the apples is of absolutely no importance. What is important however, is the message behind the image. When we remember that these photographs were taken in the mid 1930s, we must also understand that to see a leading political figure photographed in this way was not just rare, it was astonishing and something unheard of at the time. This was the public face of Nazi propaganda at work. Such innovative and deliberately targeted propaganda broke all the rules. Having never previously been subjected to such highly- developed and subtle propaganda techniques the unsuspecting general public had little understanding of it, and therefore even less defence against it.
