Hitler - His Alleged Burial Place

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

According to eyewitnesses, all of the fuhrer-bunker remains (including the Goebbels family) were buried and reburied several times in Germany.  The SMERSH men who were involved in the process gave interviews, decades later, to Russian interviewers who were working with Dutch journalists.  They also revealed that a second autopsy had been performed on the corpse believed to be Hitler's.

A former SMERSH security chief led the investigators to the alleged final resting place of the Goebbels family.  The burial sites of Hitler and Braun were also allegedly revealed, both by maps (which were drawn at the time of final burial) and by investigation (decades later).  Ground-penetrating radar was used to test the accuracy of the security chief's recollections.

This clip, from What Happened to Hitler (a documentary about Hitler's last days and aired on the Discovery Channel), includes historical footage, eyewitness interviews and recreated scenes.
