There are theories he escaped to South America
Here is one link:
I can't tell you. I wasn't there.
Pretty sure he is dead now, but a trial and execution might have been better. The suicide story might have been dreamed up hoping to stop any attempts to turn him into a martyr.
I remember seeing a show on TV that tried to show the body was moved several times, and not taken to Russia, at least not for a few years. This might be one of those things we never know for sure what happened.
I was watching a TV show tonight -(History channel, I think) and that is the point the the host was trying to make - currently there is no one alive to confirm anything.
No, and toward the end of his life he lived next door John and Marilyn Kennedy.
Ask Poncho. He knows the truth.
Then, at approximately 3:30 p.m., Axmann returned. “Goebbels and I went back to Hitler’s room and entered it. We found Eva Braun sitting on the sofa, her head resting on Hitler’s left shoulder. She wore a black chiffon dress. She was dead, but had no marks of violence on her body. She died on poison.”
He added, “Hitler’s lower jaw was slightly discarded. It was obvious he had shot himself in the mouth. On either side of his temples I saw drops of blood. The blanks of the pistol had ruptured the veins on either side of his head. The sofa was stained with blood, and his pistol lay at his feet. I remained with the corpses about 10 minutes, then I returned to the conference room, and at this point saw Hitler’s and Eva Braun’s bodies being carried out of the bunker.”
At 4 p.m., Erich Kempka, Hitler’s longtime chauffeur, carried Braun’s body outside of the bunker and into the garden behind the Reich Chancellery—the same place where Hitler made his last public appearance, awarding the Hitler Youth boys medals.
“I turned over Eva Braun’s body to Günsche and he laid it down next to Hitler’s corpse,” said Kempka. “We then picked up the cans and poured gasoline over both bodies.”
Wish I could remember the name of that program.
Not likely. Probably was living in South America.
