A team of French researchers studying Adolf Hitler’s supposed remains in Moscow believe they have stumbled upon a historic piece of evidence.
Professor Philippe Charlier has been closely examining a set of teeth collected nearly 20 years after the downfall of Berlin and claims there is “no possible doubt” about their supposed origin.
When the Soviet Red Army completely surrounded Berlin by the end of April 30, 1945, Hitler’s plans of World War 2 domination were left in crumbles.
There is some debate about the exact circumstances of Hitler’s death on April 30, 1945, but most historians agree Hitler committed suicide with his wife Eva Braun in his personal air raid bunker, the Führerbunker.
Hitler’s remains were then recovered by Soviet soldiers who unceremoniously disposed of the remains and burned them behind the Reich Chancellery.
However, some conspiracy theories concerning the German dictator suggest this was not the case.
The shocking theories vary wildly from claims he fled to Argentina via submarine, lived out his days as an expat in Los Angeles or established a base on Antartica.
But Professor Charlier, who has now examined a set of dentures recovered from Hitler’s charred remains, says he can safely establish the most evil man of the 20th century did indeed die in 1945.
The forensic expert said: “The teeth are authentic, there is no possible doubt. Our study proves that Hitler died in 1945.
“We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler.
“He did not flee to Argentina in a submarine, he is not in a hidden base in Antarctica or on the dark side of the moon.”
The study co-authored by Professor Charlier and his colleagues was published on Friday, May 18 in the scientific magazine European Journal of Internal Medicine.
The examination of Hitler’s infamously bad teeth found no traces of meat fibre – Hitler was a known vegetarian.
He said: “We didn’t know if he had used an ampule of cyanide to kill himself or whether it was a bullet in the head. It’s in all probability both.”
The study marked the first time since 1946 that researchers were given access to the alleged remains by the Russian Secret Service (FSB) and state archives.
In April 1970, a team of KGB agents exhumed the burned remains of Hitler and Braun to further burn, crush and dispose of the bodies in Biederitz river, east of Berlin.
Fragments of the dictator’s skull and jaw bones were the only surviving remains.
