Shortly before committing suicide in his underground F├╝hrerbunker, Hitler briefly stepped outside with an SS officer to survey nearby bomb damage from Allied Forces.

On April 30, 1945, Hitler learned Berlin had fallen into Allied Forces control and his Third Reich, after 12 years, would inevitably be destroyed.

Hitler then quickly married his long-term mistress Eva Braun and prepared his last will and political statement with his secretary Traudl Junge at approximately 4:00 PM.
