Never-before-seen pics show Hitler's 'lavish' private world

London, Wed, 25 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 25 (ANI): Some never-before-seen wartime pictures show rooms where Adolf Hitler spent his private moments.


The photos taken by one of the Nazi leader's personal photographers, Hugo Jaeger, revealed the Fuhrer had surprisingly lavish tastes.


The pictures show among other things Hitler's huge office in the Chancellery, Berlin, Germany, in the late 1930s or early 1940s, his private apartment above the Chancellery and his Berlin apartment in the 'New Chancellery,' the Daily Mail reported.


Between 1936 and 1945, Jaeger served as one of Hitler's personal photographers and was granted unprecedented access to the Fuhrer's private moments.


His pictures give a rare insight into what Hitler saw each day, and how he lived - fine furnishings, delicate drapes, paintings and sculptures from around the world.


Hitler's rooms in his Berlin apartment above the 'New Chancellery' reflects the Fuhrer's baroque, often sentimental taste.


Hitler was obsessed with oversized architecture and overly grand monuments that would awe and humble any visitor, yet upstairs in his private apartment, every table and sideboard seems to be covered with flowers.


A 1938 photograph of a side table has an eerie domesticity about it. The telephone, the note pad, the flowers, the glimpse of a fringed lampshade in the mirror all suggest a rather dull, comfortable, middle-class sensibility.


The interior of Hitler's Berghof estate reflected his conception of what a 'Germanic' style should look like.


There is also picture of The FUhrerbau ('Leader's Building' in German), a former Nazi Party building in Munich, Germany. It was the venue for the Munich Conference in September 1938. (ANI)
