Director of Photography. As Russian and Allied forces surrounded Berlin in 1945, Hitler took refuge in a bunker beneath the crumbling city. What exactly happened in that claustrophobic labyrinth has long been a mystery. This film depicts Hitler's final days, detailed through never-before-seen interviews with the men and women who were with him during those last desperate moments. These recordings, lost for decades, but recently found in an archive in Pittsburgh, tell the untold story of the Fuhrer's final days, in the words of the people who were there
