Hitler's Skull in Moscow Archive, Izvestia Says


The remains of Adolf Hitler's skull have been traced to a Moscow archive, a Russian newspaper said Thursday.

"I am holding in my hands the remains of Hitler's skull," journalist Ella Maximova wrote in Izvestia.

Maximova said the remains have been kept in a cardboard box with bloodied fragments of wood from a sofa in the underground bunker where Hitler committed suicide.

The whereabouts of Hitler's remains has been a subject of speculation, with persistent theories that they are still in the hands of the KGB secret police or its successor.
