ADOLF HITLER'S BERGHOF HOFFMANN POSTCARDS (17)
Lot of sixteen color postcards by Heinrich Hoffmann showing Adolf Hitler's Berghof in Obersalzberg near Berchtesgaden. Both the interior and the exterior of the property are depicted. Hitler purchased a small chalet called 'Haus Wachenfeld' in 1933 with funds he received from the sale of his political manifesto 'Mein Kampf'. The small chalet-style building was refurbished and much expanded by architect Alois Degano during 1935-36 when it was renamed The Berghof, or 'Mountain Court'. The remaining photo is black-and-white, and it depicts Hitler's office in the New Reich Chancellery in Berlin. Four of the postcards were sent between 1936-1937 as is shown by the cancellation stamps.
