Interesting! My sister-in-law was a school girl in East Prussia attending the Queen Luise School in Osterode. She reported that every classroom had a photo of Hitler, and there were also supplemental photos in the hallways showing Der Fuehrer with little children. She was under the impression at that time that he really liked children, thus the photos of him with kids.

This is a very near collection of Fuehrer Shots! Wow!
My interest in the Axis stems from my family's unwilling involvement in the Soviet invasion of East Prussia in 1945. Our publishing house has two books about the topic.

Nice early version of the "Big-Boy" himself (H. Goering).

A one I think not a lot of people will have seen I've attached.

I came across this tumblr page a while ago, for quite a few pictures of Hitler from various different ages and portraits, unprepared and other types of photos captured then look at this archive http://herr-adolf-hitler.tumblr.com/archive.

Although this is of Goebbels it still nevertheless has a portrait of Hitler in the image.

Does anybody know who took the image of Hitler that is on this wall as a portrait?

I've also seen it in the archive on a couple of other pages.

The Goebbels archive link is http://fyeahgoebbels.tumblr.com/archive.

I'm aware that it was used on a propaganda poster in 1934 with the caption "Yes!, Führer, we will follow you."

The link for this is http://www.bytwerk.com/gpa/posters2.htm which actually has a lot of different propaganda posters during the different eras.

I would say the Portrait is from a Heinrich Hoffmann image.

@ Johnnyrocket

I've seen the images of Hitler rehearsing a speech that were discovered. I'm aware Hoffmann was the main man so to speak that took photos of Hitler but there were others who indeed took photos and made paintings of him.

The thing is though, Hoffmann was the photographer and that image is a painting which is huge, this is why I doubt its one of Hoffmann's works.

Well—this is either a big portrait or a hugh retoruched print.
Wish I had some more information on this photo, but no luck.

@ Johnnyrocket

What is the source for the latter image? Huge image with great quality, I've never seen that before.

It looks like a huge portrait getting touched up, it doesn't look like a painting.

Un fortunately the source of this image is unknown. I just happen to have in in my files from years ago.

One famous picture of Hitler from 1923 and taken by Hoffmann is

From a mirror article http://www.mirror.co.uk/night-copy/adol ... iah-817905 although I've seen this photo lots of times, it is on Kerhsaw's 1889-1936 first part biography on him.

@ Johnnyrocket

It's a shame there is no source. Very nice image that looks quite rare. The places I've seen a lot of unseen images of Hitler and the Third Reich in general is on tumblr and deviantart.

The image to the right of the large Hitler is the famous Hitler in the Odeon Platz crowd.
Perhaps JR's shot is in/outside the Hoffmann studio.

@ Max

The large portrait of Hitler, is it a photo enlarged or a painting?

I wish there was a source for it, its a really good photo.
