Adolf Hitler has no grave. Fearing that his burial site could become a sacred site to fascists, Soviet KGB agents dug up his bones in 1970, burnt them, ground them to ashes, and threw them into a river in Germany under orders from the agency, a top Russian security official told CNN this week. With prior consent from the Soviet Communist Party leadership, KGB chief Yuri Andropov ordered a secret operation to destroy Hitler's remains, along with those of wife Eva Braun, top Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels, and Goebbels' entire family. The bodies had been secretly buried on the ground of a Soviet military facility on February 21, 1946, and were destroyed when the Soviets decided to turn the garrison over to East German civilian authorities. All that remains of Hitler are fragments of his jawbone and skull, which are kept in Russia as documented evidence of his death. However, U.S. researchers have not been able to obtain DNA samples from the items and doubt their authenticity.
