Berlin Recreates Adolf Hitler’s Bunker

A replica of the German dictator’s bunker, where he spent his final days at the end of World War Two, has opened in central Berlin inside a former Nazi air raid shelter.

Hitler spent the last phase of WWII stuck inside a bunker, as recreated here in a Nazi-era air raid shelter in Berlin.
