A dilettante, in any case not a painter of the time with an academic education, the pictures speak for themselves.
The name Hitler in view of these two "works" I would not even want to take in the mouth, in any case.

A Google search for "Gemälde Obersalzberg" tells the whole story:
Link: https://www.google.com/search?q=Gemälde ... 60&bih=759

Whole mountains of idiotic crap everywhere, that probably never had anything to do with Hitler the artist, and never will.
99.9 percent dilletant nonsense, not even worth the paper, or canvas, on which this crap was painted.

No decent german artist would have even "thought" such a picture after 1945, let alone, so even drawn, or even painted, trivial shit, painted for incorrigible idiots, worthless.

The painting is by Paul Schüler. Unfortunately, it doesn't belong to me, but is currently for sale:

This painting was reproduced in a smaller size print for mass sale, printed on material to make it resemble oil on canvas. The certificate on the back was to show that this was a genuine product of the handwork industry in the Erzgebirge region.

That painting would be a great candidate to reproduce as one of those micro mosaics.

Hey guys,


new english video online that might be interesting for you.

This is the world's only documentary about Martin Bormann's private bunker and the associated Command Tunnel on Obersalzberg.





With a total length of almost 700 meters, these two connected bunker systems are among the longest and also most interesting on Obersalzberg.

The "Vordereck-tunnel", also known as the "Command-tunnel", housed all of the intelligence technology of the "Füherhautquartier Berghof". The centerpiece of the facility was the "Flight- Reporting- Center", which was equipped with the most modern technical devices of the time. This was where all the threads of the intelligence system came together.

From May 1944, the facility housed the commander of the SS- Command, Obersturmbannführer Dr. Bernhard Frank, and his staff, as well as the Obersalzberg Administration.

Following the command tunnel, the private bunker of Martin Bormann is visited. With only six caverns, this bunker is relatively small and had neither shower nor bathing facilities.

Towards the end of the war, huge amounts of food and documents were stored here. Even today, remains of the documents can be found in the caverns.
Join us on an extraordinary tour of this underground facility, where time seems to have stood still since 1945.



Have fun watching and stay safe,

Thanks BEGAFILM! Unfortunately I already watched in German.

I have my copy of "Die verwandlung eines berges unter Martin Bormann by Max Hartmann". It helps with some of the security fences, etc.
It doesn't help with the beehouse unfortunately.

Is the complete "Hartmann map" available somewhere? I have a copy of 200X200 pixels. But that is not something I can work with. Unfortunately the map is not completely in the book, west of the Gutshof misses from the book.
Also the searches in the USA archives was fruitless. I found 1 reconnaissance picture in the IWM archives, but that was only one picture focussed on the Berghof itself.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Frieda Zychski interview in English. Keep up the great work.

Hi CPB,

the english interview is already online. Check it out:



Here is the AXIS post: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=256274



Question to all of you:

Would you prefere subtitles on english videos instead of english narration? Some people commented under my videos that subtitles would be better, but I doubt it would be better for the majority of people. What do you think?




Thanks and greets,

I prefer sub titles so I can concentrate on the film without distraction, and
I think easier to stop and then continue. Just my opinion.

Thank you for sharing great films :milsmile:

Thanks Begafilm.

I personally prefer the voiceover, but either way is fine to be honest.

Keep up the great work, we appreciate it.

Perhaps it would be best to register voiceover/subtitles preference on the Obersalzberg video thread?
