Am I the only one who despises the way those ivans display the relics with so much disregard...such proud eagles and standards, yet you try and buy one from them and they change their tune very quickly. They do not deserve them!

Their ultimate spoils of war was getting to keep the territory given to them as a result of 1939 Non-Aggression Pact.

Does anyone know the song Hitler and Eva listen to before they committed suicide in their Berlin bunker? I think I know, but need conformation from the Forum experts.

Hello Johnny. I am not sure AH allowed himself any record player in the Fuhrerbunker, he deprived himself of almost any luxury, and even his bed was a standard military cot. Perhaps upstairs in the RK gramaphones were played. I remember that Misch recalled EB loved 'blood red roses', and Doering (Obersalzberg) said AH couldnt stop humming the 'Donkey Serenade'.

That's what I thought too. I had seen a new documentary on Hitler today (Military Channel of course) and the song Hitler's secretary (the late Traudl Junge) had mentioned they played before their suicide was a song call "Red Roses" she also mentioned that this was both AH's and EB's very favorite song. So, this was probably the very last thing they heard before they left this world for eternity.
I had never head of this bit of info before—and just wanted other's conformation. They did have a gramaphone in the bunker—I have even seen this very gramaphone is various bunker images taken after the war.

I remember Traudl Junge before she was 'famous'. She contributed to a book called 'Last Witnesses In The Bunker' by Pierre Gallant. I asked her about it and she said at the time how she regretted her contribution, as she thought people were not interested in gossip. I still have some of her correspodence....not really worth anything, but strangely appealing as she still used an old fashioned type writer....to think the same fingers that typed his Last Will and Testament were now heading for me...

According to my research, this is the very last song EB and AH listened to just before they committed suicide in their Berlin bunker... http://www.guitarsolos.com/videos-blutr ... NHw%5D.cfm

This is probably a more a accurate version of the actual song they heard, this is a recording from the movie "Der Untergang" (The Downfall)...

The song title was: "Blutrote Rosen" that was a German recording in 1929 by The Max Mensing Orchestra.

This displays astonishing lack of understanding, both about the way the Wehrmacht disgraced these "proud eagles" by their subservience to the genocidal policies of the Nazis and by their own conduct in Russia, and about the vast suffering of the Russian people under German occupation, a wound in the Russian psyche that is very far from healed.

I understand fully. Genocide was a practice perfected by marshal stalin! 10 times more deadly than Germany....many millions of 'non people' that he deemed unworthy of life simply put to death. The gulags that enslaved millions causing incredible suffering to their own people as well as tens of thousands of German POW's are also very far from healed. the soviet union was an enemy of the free world for many more years than it was an allie, and continues to aid and abet terrorism in the name of socialism. I have only pity for those who were confronted by this regime.
