Welcome to Retroville! It's 1945!
On April 29, with the Allied troops already inside Berlin, Adolf Hitler married his mistress, Eva Braun. He wrote out a personal and political will naming Martin Bormann as his deputy. The documents banished Goering and Himmler from the Nazi Party for their perceived disloyalties during the preceding days. He appointed Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz as president of the Reich and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

Hitler then donned a new Nazi uniform and delivered his final tirade against "international Jewry."

At some time during that afternoon, propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, his wife, and their six children committed suicide in the bunker fearing what would become of them and their children following the fall of Berlin.

At approximately 3:15 p.m., Eva Braun-Hitler committed suicide by ingesting a cyanide capsule.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., Adolf Hitler fired one shot into his mouth.

Bormann's assistants gathered up the bodies, doused them in gasoline, and set them afire.

Word of the suicides leaked out almost immediately. The Allies and their countrymen cheered the deaths as a victory. However, the German press withheld official news of the death of Hitler claiming he had fallen in battle against Bolshevism.

A week later, Germany surrendered unconditionally.
