AS SEEN ON TV: ADOLPH HITLER

ADOLPH HITLER

AS SEEN IN:
'Monty Python's Flying Circus'

AS PLAYED BY:
John Cleese

From Wikipedia:
On 16 January 1945, Hitler moved into the F├╝hrerbunker. He was joined by his senior staff, Martin Bormann, and later, Eva Braun and Joseph Goebbels with Magda and their six children who took residence in the upper Vorbunker. Two or three dozen support, medical and administrative staff were also sheltered there. These included Hitler's secretaries (including Traudl Junge), a nurse named Erna Flegel and telephonist Rochus Misch. Hitler's dog Blondi was also one of the occupants of the underground bunker. Initially, Hitler would often stroll around in the chancellery garden with Blondi until March 1945 when shelling became very common.

The bunker was supplied with large quantities of food and other necessities and by all accounts successfully protected its occupants from the relentless and lethal shelling that went on overhead in the closing days of April 1945. In the final days of the war, it is said that Hitler still enjoyed 10 to 16 cups of tea per day even though it was hard to obtain. Many witnesses later spoke of the constant droning sound of the underground complex's ventilation system.

But apparently - at least in Skitlandia - Hitler escaped the bunker rather than commit suicide there.....







BCnU!
