April 30, 1945: Adolph Hitler commits suicide

  With only candles to light their way, war correspondents examine a couch stained with 
blood (see dark patch on the arm of the sofa)located inside Hitler’s bunker. 

 The History Place  . . . "Hitler and his wife then went back into their private quarters while Bormann and Goebbels remained quietly nearby. Several moments later a gunshot was heard. After waiting a few moments, at 3:30 p.m., Bormann and Goebbels entered and found the body of Hitler sprawled on the sofa, dripping with blood from a gunshot to his right temple. Eva Braun had died from swallowing poison.
