Dall’Huffington Post queste foto dell’archivio Life. Terrificante Natale 1941. Hitler con la candelina. E’ il Natale dei nazisti, che avevano però ribattezzato Julfest, festa dell’inverno, e che si celebrava in contrapposizione al Natale.
“The images are chilling, bordering on surreal: as World War II raged on December 18, 1941, Adolf Hitler presided over a Christmas party in Munich, Germany.
The photos that have been preserved are in color no less, and contain all sorts of Nazi symbols mixed with traditional decor like ornaments and tinsel dangling from a giant Tannenbaum and festive candles. The images were taken by one of Hitler’s personal photographers Hugo Jaeger.
Have a look at some of the incredible images below. You can find the full gallery at LIFE.com.
