Rudolf Hess - one of Adolf Hitler's top henchmen - was disturbed from his eternal sleep on Thursday when officials dug up his bones from his burial site in the German town of Wunsiedel. His bones were then cremated and thrown out to sea. His gravesite had become a controversial attraction for Neo-Nazis, according to cemetery officials, and with the lease on the plot coming up for renewal in October, both Hess' family and authorities at the town's Lutheran church decided it was best to do away with the shrine. "There is now one less place of evil in the world," said Elan Steinberg of the New York-based American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants.
