At You Tube I ran across this documentary called [COLOR=Blue]Death In The Bunker.[COLOR=DarkSlateGray]It's [/COLOR][/COLOR]about the last days in Hitler's Bunker, is in English (UK brand) and is divided into 9 segments of 8-9 minutes each, so it must have been a 2-hour special. I was unfamiliar with it but it looks like it was done since 2000, and was a History Channel type of production - except somewhat more dignified and less tabloid-like than THC's usual Hitler thing.

It featured first-hand on-camera interviews with what looked to be the last surviving handful of bunker dwellers: secretary Traudl Junge, telephone op Otto Misch, A.D.C. Baron Freytag von Loringhoven (who died within the last 90 days IIRC), etc. For visuals it drew largely on the films taken by 40 (!!!) Red Army cameramen whose job it was to capture the Battle Of Berlin as it occurred. Some of the clips will be familiar to you, some will not (at least I didn't know some of them).

That reason alone was enough for me to see it, and there are some startling scenes. Example: a color clip of German stretcher bearers bringing wounded German soldiers out of the Chancellery basement where an aid station had been set up for them for perhaps a couple of weeks - and the stretcher bearers are wearing gas masks. You see something like that and begin to get an idea of what it was like to live in the wretched stench of the gangrenous wounds, the dead and dying, which went untended for days as the Reich collapsed above them.

I was most surprised to see Red Army stills of what the documentary said were shots of the bodies of Hitler and Eva Braun, supposedly taken just after they were discovered in the shallow grave in the garden above the bunker four days after the city surrendered. The bodies were shown as they lay in separate wooden coffin-like boxes, and were not really recognizable as human. The larger set of remains appeared to have a badly burned arm in a sort of upraised position. (Wouldn't it be ironic if this was the final "Heil" in the third Reich?)

The Russian Federation security officers also displayed for the cameras the remnants of Hitler's skull (complete with bullet hole), as well as enough of his jaw and teeth for the Russians to say they were able to match it to Hitler's dental records. Some years ago I had seen a photo of the skull fragment, which appears to be an oval shape roughly about 3" x 2", as well as the teeth, but I had never seen photos of the remains. So IMO that's a pretty big deal.

The Russian officers also displayed the leg brace of Goebbels, complete with attached and badly-burned built-up shoe. They showed as well portions of both his and Mrs. G's teeth and dentures, which the Russians say matched their records. As if it wasn't enough to ID them by the fact that their six children lay dead nearby - after having been murdered by their mom on dad's orders. (Dear God, what people, but I think I can understand a little bit why they didn't want to turn their kids over to Stalin.)

Anyway, these things were new to me, and might be new to you.

They had the teeth and skull on THC very recently. Also had a bit about a Stuka taking off right from a city street during the last couple days of Nazi Berlin.

True but as amateur historians we need to learn/accept the reality that people won't learn...kind of twisted but that's reality.
