Adolph Hitler, now in glorious color.

Not that I'm a fan, or anything...but seeing true color images of what you've only seen and known in black & white is pretty amazing to me. It's the reason why Spielberg shot Schindler's List in black & white.

But these are pretty spooky-- makes it that much more realistic. It's amazing what a little color can do. Shot between 1936 - 1943, these images where shot by Hitler's personal photographer named Hugo Jaeger, which he hid during the war. The story of how they got into the hands of Life Magazine (including an encounter in which American soldiers found, then forgot, about them) can be found at Life.com.
