Photographer Hugo Jaeger was one of the few photographers working with color photography at the time and was granted access to Hitler’s living and study quarters, showing artwork and furnishings estimated to be worth millions even in pre-adjusted dollars. The pictures were taken in the two years leading up to the beginning of World War II.
