Breaking: Adolf Hitler Died in 1945

Here's an interesting piece of news for all you UC Santa Cruz History of Consciousness and Community Studies majors. A team of French researchers has concluded that Adolf Hitler indeed died in Berlin in 1945.

"Who's Adolf Hitler?"

Here's the story:

It's only natural that the French are the last to get in on this. When the  Red Army was crossing the  Oder River into Germany, and the Americans were crossing the Rhine and the Brits were crossing the Elbe, the French were still crossing the Seine.

But I guess we can all rest now. My old Dad used to joke that Hitler was alive and working at Lockheed (at the time a major aircraft production company in Southern California).

Of course, the Soviets were the ones to discover the burned remains of Hitler, his paramour, Eva Braun, and the Goebbels family outside the bunker. While there was no effort to conceal the remains of the Goebbels family, the bodies of Hitler and Braun were concealed and the Soviets allowed the mystery to stoke rumors that Hitler had found refuge in the West with Stalin knowing that the next stage of European history would be the Cold War, which started brewing immediately after Germany surrendered.

In later years, it was reported by the Russians that the bodies were buried outside a KGB facility in the East German city of Magdeburg and that years later, they were dug up and completely cremated. Meanwhile, we have known for years that a portion of Hitler's skull was sent to Moscow. It was the breakup of the Soviet Union that led to more access in to the Hitler question.

Common sense tells me that had Hitler escaped Berlin, it would have speaked a worldwide manhunt that surely would have quickly led to his discovery, wherever he might have been. The statements of those in the bunker with Hitler have never been disproven as to the central question about his suicide.

But for those of you still not convinced, keep in mind that Hitler would have celebrated his 129th birthday last April 20 somewhere in the jungles of South America. Then again, I guess anything is possible.

Could that be him?

Robert A. Heinlein wrote a novel in which a Nazi colony was discovered on the far side of the moon preparing to reconquer the world in Hitler's memory.
