The truth is history is told by the victors. We like to think that he died the way its been said, but there is just no way to verify any of it. This is the same reason why there are arab countries openly saying the holocaust never happened. Just about any evidence can be faked.
I'm personally inclined to believe what has been told to me about WWII because there is just no real reason for me not to believe it. The testimonies of the survivors speak volumes also.
I've always been a see it to believe it person. I want to physically see something with my own eyes before I give it my complete backing. Everything else is just a good story to draw reference on. I do my best to avoid following any idea blindly.
Banach;3573867Hitler wasn't one to run, he was just so blinded by the chance of victory that he lost his mind.
He spent his days still thinking the germans will win even with the Red army at the doors.
He lost his mind, but not in that way. In fact, he already suspected the war would be lost in 1943, around the time Operation Barbarossa collapsed. His speeches may have said otherwise, but he long knew the war was lost. That's why, evidence aside, it makes perfect sense he killed himself.
In fact, he even mentioned in 1944, i believe, that he "wouldn't have invaded such a vast country if he had any idea of the amount of tanks they could produce" (about the Soviet Union, obviously).
I also think that he probably just killed himself and ended this bloody war with seconds.
Decebalus;3573857I personally think Hitler was killed.
So you don't think he commited suicite?
I normally am one to have a open mind about conspiracy theories. I dont happen to support this one.
I think Hitler shot himself after taking poison and then his body was burned. The KGB supposedly has a skull and some remains that to teh best of their forensic ability has been determined to be Hitlers.
I do think its possible Hitler may have has some look alikes, especially after the assasination attempt, trying to escape the city and they may have been seen.
Hitlers mindset was also against leaving. He felt Germany should survive or die. If Germany wasnt strong enough to rule the world with him then they should also perish.
When I see shows or data that offers new evidence I do take a look at it but nothing compelling has come up so far to make me change my mind.
There's no doubt what so ever that Hitler died in Berlin and not just mental records prove it but also various eye witnesses like Hitler's personal driver Erich Kempka and adjutant Otto Günsche who buried him with Eva Hitler, not to mention that Hitler had said for his secretary Traudl Junge that he didn't want to end the last days of his life in some farmhouse, waiting for an arrest.
Furthermore, there were various chances for him to leave Berlin and many of his followers pressured him to do so (like Heinrich Himmler, Ritter von Greim and Albert Speer) but he didn't do so.
P.S. There have always been and there will always be all kind of conspiracy theories but we just have to tolerate them.

Even if Hitler had escaped, hypothetically speaking, he was a fairly well-known bloke with a distinctive appearance and an easily recognisable voice. Add hundreds of millions of enemies desperately looking for vengeance into that equation, and he'd have been caught faster than you could say 'bullet to the head'. Where the heck was he going to go, anyway? France?

Lol. Is there something we don't know about Villepin's past I wonder. Jk. I agree with the above that he was so famous and renowned that he would have been recognized and more than likely turned in. He was also not the sort of man to backk down, so I think he would rather die than flee in the face of danger. Plus what happened about the body? It was checked over and his identification confirmed during the autopsy.
