Cigarette card photo of Hitler reading the newspaper

Object | Accession Number: 2012.68.11

Cigarette card, Aufnahme aus der Haft 1924 auf der Festung Landsberg, number 195, Group 64, series 15, Adolf Hitler - Pictures of the Life of the Führer, from about 1936. The card features a black and white photograph of Adolf Hiter seated and reading a newspaper after his release from prison in 1924. Cigarette cards were a popular collectible item in Germany beginning about 1920. Large albums with text, but no pictures, were published for each series and the cards were collected to be added as illustrations. The increasing popularity of the Nazi Party made them a desirable subject for a collectible card series. The album for this series has text and photo captions that tell the story of Hitler's life from his birth in 1899 to his 1933 appointment as Chancellor, and then Fuhrer, of Germany.
