30 April 1945 Hitler finally proves to the world what sort of a coward he really was by shooting himself before the soviet troops could capture him and bring him to justice. Probably spurred on by the events that happened 2 days earlier near lake Como when Il Duce was butchered to death(and rightfully so), Hitler was desperate to escape a similar fate.
He gave his newlywed wife Eva Braun a cyanide tablet before putting a gun to himself and ending his life.
On this 71st anniversary I am not going in depth into Hitler’s suicide because so much has already been documented about this and I don’t think I could bring any added value to this. Instead I am going to focus on other less known people who were in the bunker on April 30 1945.
