Hitler Suicide Site Marked
Since the end of the war, the location of the bunker where Adolf Hitler committed suicide on 30 Apr 1945 had been a taboo to publicly point out. Both the communist government and the democratic one, until recently, had always feared that marking the location would bring unwanted attention from extreme-right-wing groups. As of today, however, the site is now marked with an informational panel to educate the public. "One of Hitler's former bodyguards, 88-year-old Rochus Misch, who was at the unveiling, said people should be informed of history, even when it was the history of a devil."
