What Evil Looks Like: Chilling Never-Before-Seen Color Photos of Adolf Hitler

Never-before-seen color photographs of Adolf Hitler taken by Hugo Jaeger, the infamous Nazi leader's personal photographer, provide a bone-chilling look into the Nazi regime's war years and the personal life of Hitler himself.

Jaeger reportedly took thousands of photos, many of them in color, between 1936 and 1945. Now, LIFE.com has acquired some of the images for one of its galleries.

"Jaeger hid thousands of transparencies in a leather suitcase at the end of the war. The case was found by six US soldiers as they searched a house near Munich where he was staying but they were more interested in a bottle of cognac he had also slipped inside," according to the Telegraph.

Take a look at some of the unseen photographs below:
