EXCLUSIVE First Time Published in the West: On the eve of the battle for Berlin, the SMERSH military counterintelligence agencies were tasked with finding and arresting German Chancellor Adolf Hitler and other leaders of National Socialist Germany.
As part of the advancing units of the 1st Belorussian Front, military counterintelligence officers stormed the Reichstag and the Reich Chancellery with the Fuhrer bunker equipped in its courtyard, a carefully fortified, concreted underground structure in which Adolf Hitler and his Minister of Information Minister Joseph Goebbels took refuge during the last months of the war.
After the capture of the Fuhrer bunker on May 2, 1945, and the detention by the SMERSH bodies of the SS men who were in the bunker and tried to escape from the war-ravaged saturation bombed Berlin, a painstaking collection of information began on the locations of the possible location of all the top leaders of the Third Reich.
Among the witnesses of the last days of the Fuhrer were the chief of defence of the Citadel sector (Reich Chancellery and bunker) Wilhelm Mohnke, the head of Hitler’s personal guard Hans Rattenhuber, the senior valet Heinz Linge, personal adjutant Otto Günsche and the personal pilot, commander of the Fuhrer’s ‘squadron’ Hans Baur (in some sources are erroneously listed by translators as Hans Bauer).
Their repeated interrogations about the circumstances of Hitler’s death were preserved in the materials of the Central Archive of the FSB of Russia, the State Archive of the Russian Federation, as well as in separate investigative files,
From the testimony of eyewitnesses, it followed that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun, who married him on the eve of marriage, took their own lives on April 30, 1945, and on May 1 they were followed by Joseph and Magda Goebbels, who had previously killed six of their children, whose corpses Soviet soldiers found in the bunker.
On May 13, 1945, employees of the SMERSH counterintelligence department of the 79th rifle corps in the garden of the Reich Chancellery discovered the burial place of the charred corpses of A. Hitler and E. Braun, the authenticity of which was confirmed by numerous forensic medical examinations. Documents from the investigative file against H. Baur, stored in the Directorate of the FSB of Russia for the Novgorod Region, are published for the first time.
Below are published documents from the Archives of the Directorate of the FSB of Russia in the Novgorod Region from the investigation file of the Fuhrer’s personal pilot, SS Gruppenfuehrer and Police Lieutenant General H. Baur.
The FSB for the first time published a certificate from the case and the testimony of Adolf Hitler’s personal pilot Hans Baur. The commander of the Fuhrer Squadron, in particular, described how he began working for Hitler, how the German leader feared betrayal in his inner circle, and, finally, the last conversation with him within the walls of the Fuhrer bunker in Berlin.
So, from the testimony, it follows that on April 30, 1945, on the day of his suicide, Hitler approached Baur and said: ‘Baur, I want to say goodbye to you, I want to thank you for all the services. This portrait on the wall of King Frederick, painted by Rembrandt, I give you as a keepsake. This is my favourite portrait. Try to get out of here. Where are your planes?’
The personal pilot told Hitler that the planes were in Rechlin (another name – Lerz), and urged the Fuhrer not to commit suicide, because ‘then everything will fall apart in a few hours.’
Hitler replied to Baur that he had appointed Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz as his successor. According to Hitler, the German soldiers ‘cannot and do not want to hold out any longer’, and this is unbearable for him. He also expressed his fear that the Red Army might use sleeping gas and take him alive.
Baur, in his testimony, described the changes in Hitler’s appearance during the last months of World War II. The Fuhrer appeared to be old and haggard, his hands were trembling, and it was clear to the personal pilot that Hitler had decided to commit suicide. The fact that the Fuhrer committed suicide, Baur learned from SS officers.

In addition to Hitler, his wife Eva Braun committed suicide. On May 2, 1945, Soviet troops captured Baur and other members of Hitler’s entourage – the head of the Fuhrer’s personal guard Hans Rattenhuber, the senior valet Heinz Linge, personal adjutant Otto Günsche and some others. In 1950, a Soviet military tribunal sentenced Baur to 25 years in the camps, but five years later he was handed over to the FRG as a non-amnestied criminal and released. Source 1, Source 2, Documents
