Adolf Hitler, along with wife Eva Braun, committed suicide on April 30, 1945.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand go back in time to tell us about Germany acknowledging the death of their leader, Adolf Hitler. In 1945, a German newsreader announces on Hamburg radio that Hitler has “fallen at his command post in the Reich Chancellery fighting to the last breath against Bolshevism and for Germany”. Plus, the polio vaccine is made available to the public in 1956, and same-sex marriage is legalized in Sweden in 2009.
