Rare colour photograph of Hitler's birthday





As an arch propagandist, Adolf Hitler was happy to see his life recorded in dark shades of grey.

The Nazi leader believed that traditional black and white photographs best highlighted the sinister nature of his regime, presenting dramatic images which were both powerful and menacing.

Now, however, an altogether more colourful view of the Fuhrer has emerged.

More than 62 years after his death in a Berlin bunker, images from a newly opened Paris archive show him relaxing with children in the Eagle’s Nest, his mountain top chalet in the Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria.
