Pamela has posted an amazing spread of color photos of Hitler and the Nazis drawn from Life Magazine’s archives. Most of us are used to imagining the period in grainy black-and-white, so these color photos bring the Nazi era to life with disturbing immediacy.
They’re also a reminder of Hitler’s taste for vast, grand, and vulgar theatricals. Presumably all that kitsch Nazi bric-a-brac and garish eagle-and-swastika architecture seemed just as tacky to well-educated people in the 1930s as they do to us now.
Go over to Atlas Shrugs and see the rest — it’s a huge collection.
