For the first time in more than 70 years, Russian authorities have granted full access to all of their records on Hitler's death. Including human remains presented as those of the Führer. The French forensic scientist Philippe Charlier was able to analyze them. It's time to put an end to the final mystery of Hitler's death.
Hitler's death is the most famous "cold-case" of the 20th century. Why are there no verified photos of his corpse? Why did Stalin claim that Hitler had fled to Latin America? It didn't take much longer for the legends of Hitler's survival to be born.
Philippe Charlier is a forensic scientist and specialist in suspicious historical deaths. For the first time since 1945, he was able to analyze these bones with state-of-the-art equipment. His results will put an end to the enigma of Hitler’s death once and for all.
More than 70 years after the end of the war, we are able to solve this mystery. We had access to the secret archives of the ex-KGB in Moscow as well as to the alleged human remains of Hitler. A piece of skull and teeth.
