Pre-war Nazi Germany- in colour pictures

- Advertisement -

Nazi Germany or the German Reich was the German state between 1933-45 when it was controlled by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. Also called the Third Reich, it was a totalitarian state. It subsequently ended when the Allies defeated Germany in World War II. We have compiled a list of pictures which depict how pre-war Nazi Germany looked in colour pictures. These were taken by Hitler’s personal photographer Hugo Jager who was one of the few who used colour techniques.
