This website is for those who like myself are interested in the Third Reich and Nazi Germany from a historical point of view. The aim to enable the interested to view a sample of the vast number of images taken in Germany between 1933 and 1945. It has not been created because of any admiration of the politics of that period!
Over the course of writing a postgraduate thesis on the Oder / Neisse border changes and expulsion of Germans from Poland in 1945 I collected a rather large collection of unique and original negatives and photographs taken during the Third Reich / Nazi period of German history. More recently I have acquired a fairly extensive collection of official propaganda items, primarily picture postcards, from the same period. These images were obtained either direct from the photographer or their family or from several years of wandering around flea markets in both Germany and Poland.
The images included here are a tiny fraction of those in our complete picture archive. High quality unwatermarked scans of our entire collection of Third Reich era negatives and photographs of Germany up to 1945 are available for purchase and use by historians, researchers, and publishers. Please contact us with your precise requirements and/or for further details and prices.
