Adolf Hitler Committed Suicide

Death of German Chancellor ’Adolf Hitler’

Adolf Hitler Committed Suicide

Adolf Hitler killed himself by gunshot on 30 April 1945 in his Führerbunker in Berlin. Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Leader of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. He committed suicide one day after they were married, just before the Russian troops entered his Berlin bunker at the end of World War II. Eva Braun, his wife of one day, committed suicide with him by taking cyanide.

In accordance with Hitler's prior written and verbal instructions, that afternoon their remains were carried up the stairs through the bunker's emergency exit, doused in petrol, and set alight in the Reich Chancellery garden outside the bunker. Records in the Soviet archives show that their burned remains were recovered and interred in successive locations until 1946. They were exhumed again and cremated in 1970, and the ashes were scattered.
