Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the Nazi Party. He is most well known for his central leadership role in the rise of fascism in Europe, World War II, and the Holocaust.
Officially, Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker in besieged Berlin on 30 April 1945. However, the actual Führer was knifed to death by John Druitt in the fall of 1943 during a performance of Tristan and Isolde, leaving the German High Command in charge of the Reich. Colonel Franz Kobra mentioned that Hitler's double was much easier to deal with.
