Ever wondered what happened to the corpses of Hitler, Eva Braun, and Goebbels? Russia has just released the official story of what happened after the KGB grabbed the corpses in Berlin.

In 1970, the KGB was worried that Hitler's burial place would become a place of worship for Fascist sympathisers. KGB chief Yuri Andropov — with the support of the party leadership — ordered the remains of Hitler, Braun, Goebbels, and Goebbels' family exhumed.

They had obtained the bodies in May of 1945, and the remains were eventually buried at a Soviet garrison in Magdeburg. In 1970, they handed the garrison over to the East Germans, and had to make a decision about what to do with the remains.

Taken to the outskirts of Shoenebeck, the corpses were burned on a bonfire, ground into ashes, and then thrown into the Biederitz River to destroy them completely. But the Soviets retained chunks of Hitler's skull and jaw, we assume for zombie clone related purposes.
