For how many deaths was Hitler responsible?

Why Adolf Hitler is definitely dead and not in Argentina

Adolf Hitler is dead. He committed suicide on April 30, 1945 in the Führerbunker under the garden of the Reich Chancellery. He evaded responsibility after he was responsible for seventy million dead in World War II and six million murdered in the Holocaust.

On the afternoon of April 30, 1945, two and a half million Soviet soldiers had almost completely taken Berlin - past the Anhalter Bunker and the Führerbunker in the direction of the Reichstag. In his bunker, Hitler consulted his doctors Ludwig Stumpfegger and Prof. Werner Haase on how he could most safely kill himself. Under no circumstances did he want to fall into the hands of "the Russians" and be exhibited in the Moscow zoo - so he feared. His role model, Benito Mussolini, the leader of the Italian fascists, had been captured. That was the very last report that arrived in the bunker and encouraged Hitler to kill himself and be burned. But Hitler was unsure whether it would be best to shoot himself with his Walter PPK and yet poison himself with a cyanide capsule. The cyanide capsule was tested on his German Shepherd. Blondi died immediately. Blondi's puppies were shot. Hitler then decided to play it safe. Since the cyanide capsule would paralyze and kill him in seconds, he had to act quickly. The cyanide is in a small glass capsule as it becomes gaseous at around 26 degrees. Hitler was sitting on the sofa in the living room of the Führerbunker. He put the Walter PPK on the right bunk, bit on the cyanide capsule and immediately pulled the trigger.

At 3:15 p.m. Hitler said goodbye to his closest confidante in the center aisle of the bunker, with whom he had lived for many years, his valet Heinz Linge, his adjutant Otto Günsch, who received precise instructions from his secretaries on how his corpse should be cremated Traudl Junge and Gerda Christian, from his diet cook Constanze Manziarly. Linge and Günsch cannot hear a shot because it is too loud due to the artillery fire and the pumps in the bunker. At 3:50 pm they open the anteroom to Hitler's bunker room, smell the pistol shot, and bring the "boss", as they call him, wrapped in a blanket to the emergency exit of the bunker in the garden of the Reich Chancellery. In front of the emergency exit they put his corpse and that of his wife Eva Hitler down, pour gasoline over them both and set them on fire. The corpses do not burn completely, but are still recognizable. At around 6.30 p.m., the remains of the corpses are pushed onto a board, placed in a 90 centimeter deep hole, excavated by SS Rottenführer Harry Mengershausen. The dead are poorly poured in.

On May 4, 1945 soldiers of the Soviet 3rd Shock Army discovered the bomb crater with the corpses, a man and a woman. Since it is suspected at this point that Hitler had already been found, they wrap the corpses in blankets again and bury them in the same place. On May 5, 1945, anti-espionage officers Smersh and others excavated the bodies and took them via Prenzlauer Berg to the Berlin Buch hospital, now a Soviet field hospital. There they are put on hold in the basement. The autopsy or dissection will be carried out on Tuesday, May 8, 1945 by the Soviet forensic scientist Dr. Faust Shkaravski and Dr. Nikolai Krayevski, the chief pathologist in the Red Army. Part of the jaw is removed. Hitler's dental technician Fritz Echtmann, assistant to dentist Hugo Blaschke, and his assistant Käthe Heusermann identify dental prostheses and plastic bridges. The find is also compared with X-ray images and index cards. The corpse's teeth are clearly identified as Hitler's. Dentist Hugo Blaschke, who left on the "Führer birthday", on April 20, 1945, was taken prisoner by the Americans and received plaster and spatula from the Soviets to recreate Hitler's teeth from his head. It exactly coincides with the secured jaw.

The remains are buried again on the hospital grounds, transported on to Finow in May 1945, exhumed again on May 22, 1945 so that SS Rottenführer Harry Mengershausen could identify the bodies. One department of the secret service did not trust the other. On Sunday, June 3, 1945, General Mesik arrived from Moscow. Hitler is exhumed again and taken 125 kilometers further to Rathenow, where he is buried on the outskirts near Soviet barracks. In December 1945 the corpses were exhumed again and taken 65 kilometers further to Magdeburg to the Soviet barracks area, where they were buried and a little later dug up and taken to a two-meter-deep inspection pit for motor vehicles at Westendstrasse 32 (today Klausener Strasse 32) in Magdeburg. On February 21, 1946, they were dug up again, autopsied and buried, then covered with asphalt.

In March 1970, the garrison town of Magdeburg is to be handed over by the Soviets to the GDR authorities. There is a stir in the Kremlin and letters from KGB leader Yuri Andropov to party and state leader Leonid Brezhnev. Brezhnev orders that the corpses, which are rotten in the crates, be cremated again and that the ashes be dumped into a tributary of the Elbe. There are detailed logs of all these processes. The last message from Sunday, April 5, 1970 states: "The remains were completely burned, then crushed to ash powder along with pieces of coal, then thrown into the river.“The river is the Ehle, the bridge is called Pig Bridge.
