Fresh Doubt over Hitler's Death after Tests on Bullet Hole Skull Reveal it Belonged to a Woman

Revealed: The skull with a bullet hole, kept in a Russian archive, is a woman's

Where is he? The skull the Soviets found in 1946 is not Adolf Hitler's, tests show

Is it hers? Eva Braun died aged 33 and the skull was from a woman under 40

The bunker: Where Hitler and Braun's bodies were said to be burned and buried

A skull fragment believed for decades to be the Nazi leader’s has turned out to be that of a woman under 40 after DNA analysis.

Scientists and historians had long thought it to be conclusive proof that Hitler shot himself in the head after taking a cyanide pill on 30 April 1945 rather than face the ignominy of capture.

The piece of skull - complete with bullet hole - had been taken from outside the Fuhrer’s bunker by the Russian Army and preserved by Soviet intelligence.

Now the story of Hitler’s death will have to rewritten as a mystery - and conspiracy theorists are likely to latch on to the possibility that he may not have died in the bunker at all.
