Published by the Cigaretten-Bilderdienst. 203 Photographs by Heinrich Hoffman. Text by Joseph Goebbels, Julius Schreck, Otto Dietrich, Wilhelm Bruckner, Robert Ley, Albert Speer, Fritz Todt, Baldur von Schirach, Philipp Bouhler and Julius Schaub.
A perfect reproduction and translation of the famous original 1936 cigarette card photo album “Adolf Hitler: Bilder aus dem Leben des Führers” with articles from Hitler’s entourage describing his life, work, and achievements. The original was sold as a blank book, and then the owner would purchase the photographs separately. The images would then be manually pasted in to complete the book. It contains 203 rare and unseen photographs dealing with all aspects of Hitler’s political work before his assumption of power—and for the first few years thereafter.
Regarded as one of the crowning popular propaganda achievements which helped consolidate Hitler’s hold on power, this book had sold millions of copies by 1940, and was one of those specifically ordered destroyed by the Allied occupation forces after 1945. This is not a “photocopy”, but a perfect digital copy from a German original that has been reproduced to the highest possible quality standards.
