    Nazi bodies

    I was wondering, where are buried all the Nazis. Where are those who were executed in the Nürnberg trials? Are they buried in the Prison (was it Spandau?) where they were kept? Talking about the most major Nazis, like Keitel or v. Rippentrop.

    And, For example Hitler, was he ever found? I heard that he was found by couple of Soviets soon after his death. Then, from what i have heard his (and Eva Hitler's) bodies were transferred to Russia and thrown to unknown grave or burnt again.

    Then, what happened to Goebbels family?


    P.S. Please this is just a question not a nazi-related discussion. Let's not get banned

    i know that soviet soldiers found Joseph and Magda Goebbels's half burnt bodies. also their six children, dead in the bedrooms of the Führerbunker. those are facts, but the fate of the bodies of Hitler and Braun are open to speculation, as there are many theories.

    We don't know, and we probably never will. I imagine that Hitler would have ordered his body destroyed, given how much he knew the world hated him. That's what I would have done.

    Then, what happened to Goebbels family?
    Believed to have been burned by German soldiers on his orders.

    Also, Goring was cremated, Borrmann went missing (presumed dead), and Hess is still apparently buried in Bavaria. He almost survived the Cold War, and committed suicide in his 90s.

    Regarding Nuremberg IIRC after execution all the bodies were cremated and the ashes thrown to a nearby river at night. The place was kept secret and as far as I know it is still so.

    What happened to the bodies of Hitler, Eva Braun and the Goebbels is not at all clear, at least to me. Supposedly they were somehow disposed of in the 70s.

    Yes, the bodies of the Nuremberg executed were cremated (I thought I read somewhere that they were cremated in the Dachau ovens) and tossed into a river. I believe Hitler's remains were also thrown into a river in 1973 by the KGB.

    Never heard about that. There was a program on discovery though about some bone specialist recently getting access to Stains old file on Hitler and actually found fragments of skull in there that he DNA tested and proved to be Hitler. Dont know if it would hold up in court, just wonder if anybody else saw it?

    Dr. Joseph Mangal did that and died of a heart attack in Brazil I think.

    Mengele drowned in a river in Argentina, wasn't someone, maybe Goebbels, dumped in the Elbe during some rioting?
    Edit: From Wiki: The remains of the Goebbels family were secretly buried, along with those of Hitler, near Rathenow in Brandenburg. In 1970, they were disinterred and cremated, and the ashes thrown in the Elbe. Not sure how reliable this is however.

    Heinrich Himmlers grave remains unknown

    Joseph Goebbels ashes wher presumably thrown into the Elbe river

    Martin Bormanns remains location are still a mystery, about 4 different rumours

    Adolf Eichmann was executed in Israel and his remains scattered in the Mediterranean sea

    Reinhard Heydrich was buried in Berlin

    Albert speer was buried in London

    Hermann Goring's remains where cattered in the Conwentzbach river in Munich along with other executed at the Nuremberg trials(including Joachim von Ribbentrop)

    Wrong.

    Menguele died in Brazil, and in the sea.

    Heres some links to that movie about Hitlers skull, it does seem somewhat doubtful but then again even if it was true it would be hard to prove:
