suicide, or the whole issue of weather or not her escaped. I have chosen to take the side believing that Hitler killed himself and committed a double suicide with his wife, Eva Braun. There are many theories about how Hitler escaped, but there is absolutely no concrete evidence to back up these theories. There are a few stories saying that Hitler escaped to Iceland and a few more claiming that there was this whole Nazi underground system set up to help Nazi?s and Hitler himself escape. To me these stories don?t seem the least bit logical. The path I have chosen to follow and believe in, I gained from a biography called Adolph Hitler, written by John Toland. This story seems the most logical to me and I found almost the exact same one in another book titled Hitler by Joachim C.

Fest. Here is the way the story unfolds. It?s 1945, Germany knows they have lost the war, and Hitler knows it too. Late morning of April 30, 1945, Adolph and his wife, Eva, come out of his room. SS Major Otto Gunsche, a very good friend of Adolph?s, then greeted them. Hitler took Gunsche aside and told him that he and his wife were going to commit suicide. He wanted their bodies burned. ?After my death,? he explained, ?I don?t want to be put on exhibition at a Russian wax museum.? Gunsche then called SS Colonel Erich Kempa, another very good friend of Adolph?s and told him that he was coming over. Kempa could tell that something was wrong. Then Kempa?s phone rang again; it was Gunsche telling him that he needed two hundred liters of gasoline. Kempa thought it was a joke and

Gunsche told him to leave it by the Fuhrer bunker immediately. Hitler was then bidding his personal pilot an emotional farewell. The pilot, Hans Bahr, begged Adolph to escape by plane to Argentina, but Hitler refused. He responded, ?One must have to courage to face the consequences, I am ending it all here!? They bid there last farewells and then Hitler and Eva left, to end their lives and die together. They were sitting on the couch in their suite. Eva was the first to die, by poison. At about 3:30pm, Hitler picked up his 7.65-caliber Walther pistol. It had been his companion for years. He put the barrel to his right temple and pulled the trigger. Gunsche and Kempka heard the shot from upstairs and stumbled into the room of the Fuhrer. They took in what had happened and carried

the bodies to the garden. They proceeded to pour the gasoline all over Adolph and Eva. The clothing of the bodies became so soaked even the strongest gust of wind brought no stirring of their clothing. Gunsche suggested to Kempka igniting the bodies with a hand grenade, but Kempa thought the idea to repugnant. He saw a large rag lying near a fire hose at the entrance. He pointed it out to Gunsche who doused it with gasoline. Kempka took out a pack of matches and set fire to the rag. He tossed it onto the bodies and watched them erupt into a ball of flames. The men watched, hypnotized, as the fire consumed Eva and Adolph. More cans of gasoline were delivered and for the next three hours they kept pouring the liquid on the smoldering corpses. That evening the charred remains of

Adolph and Eva were swept into a canvas and, so Gunsche recalled, ?let down into a shell hole outside the exit from the bunker, covered over with earth, and the earth pounded firm with a wooden rammer.? While there is no medical evidence of Adolph Hitler or Eva Braun?s bodies ever being identified, I believe that they were identified and burned by Kempka and Gunsche. There is no solid, to the core; concrete proof of this story being true, but about eleven sources I investigated gave either the exact story or something very, very similar. I believe that if Hitler did escaped, he would have been discovered. I reason that someone as outgoing and greedy as him wouldn?t have been able to just sit back and let things happen.
