Hitler's Skull at the Russian State Archive

Hitler's Skull at the Russian State Archive Social Studies World War II Russian Studies World History

When the Soviet Army captured Berlin, some of its members investigated Hitler’s bunker.  What they reportedly found, among other things, was the body of Adolf Hitler.

For decades, no one knew for sure what had happened to Hitler’s remains.  While eyewitnesses reported that his body had been burned, outside his bunker, where was the proof? 

Then, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russian State Archives announced that Hitler’s skull and part of his jaw bone were kept in the Archives.  This image depicts a photograph of the skull fragment.

Some scientists remain skeptical that the skull once contained Hitler’s brain since their studies indicate it had belonged to a female under the age of 40.  Officials at the Russian State Archive, however, insist that the object is a fragment of Hitler’s skull.
