From the Telegraph:
The chief archivist at the Federal Security Service in Moscow repeated Russia’s assurances that the skull, and a jaw bone, were the “only documentary evidence” of the Nazi leader’s death despite the claims, in a United States documentary.
The four-inch skull fragment has a hole where a bullet reportedly passed through Hitler’s left temple when he shot himself.
Kept in Russia’s state archive, it was put on public display in 2000 and is the only evidence to back the accepted story that Hitler committed suicide.
Jawbones, said to be confirmed as Hitler’s through dental records, are kept at the federal security service archive but have not been put on show, nor has any DNA confirmation of their veracity been offered.
Russia maintains that these two artefacts prove Soviet troops found Hitler’s body in the ruins of Berlin in 1945 and that he died on April 30 when he shot himself just after taking cyanide.
Conspiracy theories suggest that Hitler did not die in 1945 but survived and fled to South America or elsewhere and that the skull is not genuine.
