What Happened to Hitler's Remains?

By June 9, 2005

Follow me on:

It is known that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and his new wife, Eva Braun, committed suicide on April 30, 1945 in his bunker in Berlin. But what happened to their remains? For decades, the Soviets kept their knowledge of Hitler's remains a secret, which left the rest of the world guessing as to Führer's whereabouts. An article in the Russian paper Pravda traces Hitler's remains.
