  2. I am assuming this is photoshopped, especially given that in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Hitler_with_other_German_soldiers.jpg|this photo] his moustache is different.

  6. No, this isn’t photoshopped. It was validated in the book “Study in Tyranny” by Alan Bullock.

  7. This picture has since been proven a fake. As on comment says, the mustache is completely from photos of Hitler shortly thereafter in his military uniform.
