Hitler escaping to Argentina or Middle East? He had an uncontrollable tremor in his left hand - he wouldve stood out easily , then captured by groups like Mossad. That tremor ( there's film of him on TRshow with his trembling hand in 1944-45) he had is Parkinson's, my Grandad had it, he died within 7 Hitler would've died within a few years anyway.

The Germans could have won but it was their high command and that Hitler wanted "libetsrelum- Room to live for the German people". Until the end, Hints why he made some stupid discussions. They the weapons and the advance tec "for the time", but it was their own leader for their down fall.

The sad reality is that this was not really the end of the Nazis. They for the most regrouped in Argentina. If Hitler could come back, & see what form of government we have today, he’d think that he’d won the war. Maybe they did.

What I find most depressing about the event in which Hitler, and many of his fellow officers, took their own lives is that some of the wives of high officials killed their own kids with poison, claiming that they didn’t want their kids to live in a world without Nazism.

Great video, very accurate and huge work! By the way, really Nazis threw children to the battle. Especially from the "Hitler Youth" organisation and the SS-divisions were also involved in it. As Goebbels himself ordered to form the "Volkshturm" (or peoples' militia), in which there were 14-years old to 80-years old people and they were recruited, he also proclaimed that "it is an obligatory for the each German to protect its land from the Communist beasts that would avenge you by killing very last German man, woman and a child for their ruined houses and destroyed families" (what was, of course, a lie to the reality). For disobey there was a war tribunal which ordered to hang even a child if he or she refuses to protect the German Reich and the Fuhrer till the last breath. It was an interesting fact that Stalin forbid to offend German people till the tribunal penalty by the special order (given in 19 of January 1945 about the behaviour on the territory of Germany"), and there was an evidence, that a young boy from the Hitler Youth surrendered to one Soviet captain and being known that he speaks German, said to him: "Don't tell one, I've surrendered: my parents would be executed as I betrayed Germany, betrayed Fuhrer"-such fanatic ideas and measures were widely spreaded among the population by the Nazi leaders, especially during the last days of battle for Berlin. What is more, there are evidences that Hitler himself ordered to sank the Metro with German citizens and injured soldiers, when he was reported there are Soviet soldiers inside it, so the last ones had to save them from being sunked-that was the real price of Hitler's "love" of his people-a real love was only to his regime, no more. So, together we crushed Nazism,-hope it will never rise its head. Therefore we must remember that horrible, but at the same time heroic events.

Himmler was a military novice, a chicken farmer, Hitler was a corporal who didn't know much more. Stalin let his generals fight the war, led by Zhukov and Rokovsovsky and ran over the Reich.

It's worth noting that the Germans defending the Reichstag made a special effort to hold out until May 2. If the Soviets had captured the building on May Day, it would have been a MASSIVE propaganda coup for them.

Incorrect information at 11:35 ...That famous scene of Hitler giving Iron crosses is from MARCH 20th 1945 NOT April 20th 1945... Many "Historians" lol... get that wrong. He did however meet with some of his men for a celebration on his birthday. It was certainly NOT a public appearance. Down voted for incorrect info! I like you dude, I appriciate people who like history, but it's kinda just annoying when you call yourself a historian but give wrong info...
