These secret photographs are from an early propaganda pamphlet titled “Deutschland Erwache” (Germany Awaken) written in the 1930s that Hitler later disliked. Apparently an English soldier found the photos and his family hung on to them for years. They’re now set to be published in a book called The Rise of Hitler by Trevor Salisbury. You can kind of see why even a monster like Hitler was embarrassed by the photos, which include gems like this.
