Adolf Hitler killed himself by gunshot on April 30, 1945, in the Führerbunker in Berlin. His wife of 24 hours, Eva Braun, committed suicide with him by taking cyanide. That afternoon their remains were carried up the stairs through the bunker's emergency exit, doused in petrol, and set afire in the Reich Chancellery garden outside the bunker. Or so the officially approved histories say...

Since his supposed death on April 30, 1945, many trees have fallen to create articles and books concerning: is Hitler dead; how did he die; is he alive, and so on. Enough lies and contradictions have been put forth concerning the death of Hitler and Eva Braun, and the disposal of their bodies, that speculation about how and where they died persist to this day.
