Skull fragment isn't Hitler's

September 30, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A piece of skull with a bullet hole that Russian officials said belonged to Adolf Hitler actually came from a woman, scientists at the University of Connecticut in Hartford concluded.

The cranium fragment is part of a collection of Hitler artifacts preserved by Soviet intelligence after Hitler and Eva Braun reportedly committed suicide in a Berlin bunker in April 1945. The collection was put on display in 2000.

Archaeologist Nick Bellantoni examined the skull for a History Channel documentary.
