Color photography in WW2

I have a number of color 35mm slides from Germany during 1941 - 43. Does anyone know how easy or not it would be to obtain color film of this type at this time.Would it be Agfa film?Any history regarding this type of film at that time would be of interest.

What is it you are wanting to do? Turn these into prints? If so, I would scan them with a backlit scanner.

Re: Color photography in WW2

hi,
my 2 cents... if in germany it could be either kodak or agfa...!!
on some of the article I notice reference of kodak subsiderary in germany during that time..
you may want to look at this time line..... to give yo clue on the film..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_photography click on the link in the time line that will give additional info...

and that link... , if yours is agfa.. right below the time line list... look at the "Modern color film" section..... important clue for you about afga

questions like your i love... i learn a lot of things... i didn't know that color film was actually starting be developed as far back as 1720!!

I am mainly interested in the availability during wartime and likely make of the film used at this period of time . Best practices for conservation would also be of interest.

You could also try contacting someone at this group. They are a small group originating out of Stanford U, focusing mainly on photographic conservation.
