2. May 1, 1945
This is the date that Hitler’s death was announced to the world. He had taken his own life by gunshot, and his wife went with him by cyanide poisoning. He left instructions which were dutifully carried out, that their bodies be taken outside and burned. Hitler realized he had lost the war and chose to end his life rather than be subjected to the fate the allies had in mind for him.
