Ernie,

That looks great to me! I'd say that's about as close a comparison as anyone could make these days.

Thanks,

Geoff

Really interesting pictures. Having noticed how the young Russians trampled around, I hope the American forensic experts were not looking for traces of DNA (sorry, joke). They probably were looking for shell cases from the pistol (the magazine still is in place: how many bullets were missing ?) or further blood stains (on the sofa you see some). It is said that the Russians took the rest of the dead body of the Fuehrer with them as souvenir, why did they leave the gun? Was some blood collected and preserved? Was it compared with the blood on the rest of the alleged Hitler cadaver?

AH killed himself with a standard Walther 7.65 PPK. ( polizei pistole kurz). A Axmann later claimed to have safeguarded the pistol until his point of capture, at which point, he simply 'threw it away'.
The pistol in the picture is obviously not in the least connected to the double suicide. EB famously declined to use a smaller pistol on herself, as she wished to remain 'pretty even in death'.
Although, as yet not proven, there is some credence to O.Guensche performing the coup de grace on both bodies. I have spoken to an old friend of his and heard some quite startling things. Guensche himself was an honourable and famously loyal servant of his Fuehrer, unto his own death, and officially revealed nothing to the world at large. Perhaps his son, Kai may one day have some new information for us, although I doubt it.

Hello dear all,

I visited the New Reich Chancellery site again a couple of days ago, this time with the intetion to find any trace where the so-called still existing driverbunker can be. I had found a rather small concrete structure at the site, I think those who are familiar with how nowadays the place looks like will know from the pictures I attached where the location is, which may well be the top of the driverbunker. What is a little bit weird is the fact that the top of the structure is about 1.5 meter higher than the ground level. However, I cannot think of any post war construction at the site from which that could have remained there. Can any of you affirm or reject that this is the driverbunker? Or if it is not, is it something that used to belong to the Chancellery?

Thank you.

I take it the entrance shown in these last two photos originally connected to the Kannenberg passage.

Thank you.
indeed it is the Fahrerbunker . . Sorry for the side angle!
Often confused with a similar sounding bunker! This is the entrance to it, close to the southern edge of the roof, and only accessible with permission from Berlins municipal authorities.
The brilliant organisation,'Berlin Unterwelten', specifically Dietmar Arnold, are one of the last to have been there recently.
i think that ground level would have been where the roof edge was then.

Great photos of the Fuhrerbunker complex. I was in Berlin around the summer of 94 and that area was overgrown with weeds. Now my question is there were concrete slabs sticking out of the ground. Would anyone know if this was parts of the Wall or the Bunker... ? I took a piece of the concrete from that area !!!! Thx....
