Did Hitler Escape From the Bunker?

Did he escape the Soviets?From:  Telegraph.co.uk

The four-inch skull fragment has a hole where a bullet reportedly passed through Hitler’s left temple when he shot himself and is kept in Russia’s federal archives along with what are said to be his jawbones. Together, they are all that is left of Hitler’s body, the charred remains of which Soviet forces first recovered in 1945. For years, the Russians have held up the artefacts as proof that Soviet troops found Hitler’s body in the ruins of Berlin and that he died on April 30 when he shot himself just after taking cyanide.

But a History Channel documentary programme broadcast in the US called Hitler’s Escape claims the skull fragment belongs to a woman under 40 and not Hitler, who was 56 when he died. It quotes Nick Bellantoni, an archaeologist and bone specialist who took DNA samples from the skull in Moscow and had them tested at the University of Connecticut. He and his colleagues are sceptical that the skull fragment could belong to Eva Braun, Hitler’s long-time companion, since she is thought to have committed suicide by cyanide rather than with a gun.

The findings are likely to revive conspiracy theories suggesting that Hitler did not die in 1945 but survived and fled to South America or elsewhere. Proponents of that theory believe Soviet troops found only his body double.

However, the Russians have never held up the skull as exhibit one, always insisting that the jawbones — said to be in perfect condition – are confirmation. Soviet forces tracked down an assistant to Hitler’s dentist in 1945 who confirmed their authenticity. The contested skull fragment was found later, in 1946, when the Russians began an investigation after rumours that Hitler was still alive. It was found in the same hole outside Hitler’s bunker where his body was first found.

    I don't think we'll ever find out what really happened to Hitler.

    I've always wondered if Hitler did this:

    I don't know all the details about it but from this article, why wouldn't the skull be found with the rest of the body? I mean, even if bombed, what are the odds only the skull would be missing? Then again, I don't know about the ballistics of the luger or p-38 or even what kind of gun it supposedly was.

    I believe the Soviets found Hitler alive and integrated him into the Soviet Union with Nazi scientists. He had vast knowledge on the projects his Nazi scientists worked on and had many ideas to give the Soviet Union. This would explain the female remains and the Soviet cover up.

    There is a picture of Adolf hitler standing on a jetty. The photo was taken at the same place the famous missing painting of Black Beard the pirate was painted around 1700. The photo and painting were done at Black Rock in AUSTRALIA!
