Searching for traces using historical photos of Obersalzberg

“A picture is worth a thousand words“ – or not. Photos are seen as a reflection of reality. What is seen in pictures was and is believed. During the Nazi era, Adolf Hitler staged himself at Obersalzberg as a supposedly likeable Reich Chancellor reading the newspaper, with children or on a walk. The photos were distributed millions of times. They show what Hitler was really like – or so the propaganda claimed. But what do the pictures really show? How and why were they taken and published?

The workshop goes in search of clues with historical photos of Obersalzberg. Reading images, scrutinising them and placing them in context with additional sources is the aim of this workshop, which is offered by the Obersalzberg Documentation.
