There was an eclectic mix of individuals residing in the bunker with Hitler at this time including senior Nazi officers, Hitler’s personal protection squad, soldiers, civilians, children and even a female test pilot but how did they fair at the end? Not all died or were captured.

But how did Hitler really die? Or did he escape as some evidence has previously suggested?
