These are the never-before-seen photos of evil Adolf Hitler produced by the Nazis to try and show what a nice chap he was.

Hundreds of black-and-white images show the Nazi dictator grinning and interacting with children in an effort to portray him as a “personal friend and guardian of the German youth”.

At the time, the propaganda worked as thousands of young people came to believe Hitler as a personal friend and father figure.

Thus, through the encouragement of the many youth organisations were set up for that very purpose.

There were also numerous pictures depicting Hitler working tirelessly for the German people – even though historically, he was known not to be a morning person who rarely woke up before midday.

The series of propaganda postcards have been published in Hitler’s Alpine Headquarters by James Wilson – which takes a look at how Hitler transformed the small mountainside region of Obersalzberg into his home and the Nazis’ southern headquarters.
