Who holed the Fuhrer?
According to the European Journal of Internal Medicine, French scientists from the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines authenticated the remains of Adolf Hitler, stored in Russia. For this, they used teeth issued by the Federal Security Service of Russia, which, according to official data, belong to the Nazi Führer.
I will say right away: “installed” is too loud. This fact was established by Soviet specialists immediately after the end of the Second World War. Thus, foreign experts only once again confirmed what our public knew about 70 years ago.
In principle, there is nothing wrong with the fact that foreign science has decided to double-check the well-known data. Especially in view of the legends incredibly proliferated on the Internet about the future life of the Fuhrer either in Argentina, or in Antarctica, or in general on the far side of the Moon. Apparently, this was the opinion of the competent Russian authorities, who allowed the French access to these materials.
However, it seems that an objective and strictly scientific examination was only a specious cover for some of the conclusions that were made by foreign guests without due scientific grounds and which have a clearly expressed political connotation.
First of all we are talking about the following statements:
How the French scientists' minds have established that Hitler did a hole in his skull with his own hands, and not with someone’s help, is not reported in the published report. This is not surprising, since it is almost impossible to determine who exactly hit the trigger of the 73 pistol a year ago in the bunker of the Reich Chancellery.
The French only once again confirmed the presence of traces of potassium cyanide in the oral cavity of Hitler and the presence of a hole in the skull. From which it absolutely does not follow that the Führer himself suicide twice.
This seemingly trifle has a very significant political and ideological significance. The official Nazi version of the death of the ringleader of the Third Reich, published during the battle for Berlin, categorically insisted that the Führer was killed as a soldier at the post. What did the classic way for a German soldier to voluntarily withdraw from life - with the help of firearms? weapons. The Nazis didn’t even stutter about any accepted poison, for it would surely damage the Fuhrer’s reputation and negatively affect the German morale that was already close to complete exhaustion.
The post-war statements of the few surviving inhabitants of the Reich Chancellery’s bunker also followed this Nazi version, although there were almost no real witnesses to Hitler’s death.
Therefore, the question of the specific circumstances of his death remained open, which gave grounds for Soviet publicists to assume that the real picture of events was somewhat different from the official German version. Namely, at the point that Hitler died not as a courageous soldier, but as a weak-willed coward, with the help of an instantaneous poison. And one of his minions helped him “shoot himself” after his death. Because it was necessary to Nazi propaganda.
In the most vivid and psychologically convincing way, this Soviet version was presented in the last episode of the epic “Liberation”, where Hitler’s personal cowardice in the face of death was quite clearly revealed against the background of his human insignificance and complete moral collapse.
Soviet filmmakers had the right to such an interpretation primarily because it was fully confirmed by the well-known facts about Hitler’s personality. In particular, his hypertrophied narcissism, turning into narcissism. And a pronounced contempt for ordinary people, for faceless masses, which he considered to be a consumable material for his “ingenious” designs.
His words are widely known that all German people deserve death, since he could not even defeat the "eastern barbarians".
A person with such a wide range of deviations from the psychological norm of perception of reality could well feel sorry for himself more than the rest of the German people. And, accordingly, Hitler really could have escaped from life as the last irresponsible coward, and not as a soldier at his post.
In any case, this Soviet version was not without psychological certainty. And besides, it was indirectly confirmed by the fact that at the time of Hitler's death no one had seen. Even the Nazis dare not deny this. In addition, it was elementarily useful, since it worked on debunking Hitlerism in post-war Europe and was a serious impediment to the attempts of the heroization of demonic Adolf.
And now, without any scientific basis, French scientists suddenly come out in favor of Hitler himself shooting himself. That is, he really was the very courageous Aryan with whom Nazi propaganda was trying to depict him! A legitimate question arises: why did they need it? And who is behind them? Who in the 21 century once again needed to raise the Nazi Fuhrer on the shield and make a political icon out of this long-rotten corpse?
I do not have an exhaustive answer to this question. However, taking into account how widely and everywhere in modern Europe neo-Nazi sentiments have gone up, we can confidently assume that there are such customers, and there are plenty of them.
For those who today are trying to trample the banner of our Victory in the dirt and announce 9 on May Day of mourning over the defeated Third Reich and its Fuhrer, it is imperative that Adolf Hitler was still very much alive today. And even as a corpse, I would be completely flawless in the eyes of those young followers who are becoming more and more common today. And who are confident that the hour of their revenge is not far off.
And if the French scientists really had nothing in mind, then it is absolutely incomprehensible why they dragged to their scientific report a frankly politicized and unproven fiction that Hitler shot himself. That is what they gave themselves.
