Hitler - Berlin Falls to the Soviet Army

NOTICE:  THIS VIDEO INCLUDES INTENSE SCENES FROM WORLD WAR II.  PARTS OF THE HISTORICAL FOOTAGE ARE NOT EASY TO WATCH.  PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

On his deathbed, Stalin ordered that Hitler's possessions (which the Red Army took after they captured Berlin) would be locked-away.  But when the Soviet Union collapsed, the government opened the Russian archives.  They reveal Hitler's possessions, some of his drawings and, reportedly ... his skull.

This clip, from What Happened to Hitler (a documentary about Hitler's last days and aired by the Discovery Channel), focuses on the Red Army's invasion of Berlin, forcing its collapse on the 2nd of May, 1945.  It includes historical footage, expert interviews and recreated scenes.
