Criminal justice professor says Hitler may not have killed himselfBreaking News
Could the man responsible for leading Germany into World War II and creating a system that led to the extermination of 6 million Jews during the war have actually escaped the Soviet Army encircling Berlin and fled to South America, rather than commit suicide in his underground bunker?
John Cencich, a California University of Pennsylvania senior professor of criminal justice, digs into one of the 20th century's greatest mysteries — whether Nazi leader Adolf Hitler staged his own death on April 30, 1945 — during an eight-part series, “Hunting Hitler,” that is being broadcast on the History Channel.
While historians have written that Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker in Berlin just days before the Germans surrendered, Cencich, an expert adviser for the series, reaches a different conclusion after an objective, factual historical analysis of the evidence, using existing forensic techniques and commingling that with the evidence that existed in 1945.
