نشرت صحيفة «الديلي ميل» البريطانية، مجموعة من الصور للمصور الأمريكي ويليام فانديرفيرت، وثقت اللحظات الأخيرة في حياة الزعيم الأماني أدولف هتلر، وعشيقته إيفا بروان، بعد انتحارهما بساعات قلية لخسارة الحرب.

A ripped, blood stained and burnt sofa inside the bunker - which was located under the Reichschancellery building in the heart of Berlin. Hitler lived in the Führerbunker with Braun for the last months of the war

وذكرت الصحيفة أن الصور تعود لعام 1945، تم تصويرها بعد أن نجح المصور «فانديرفيرت» في الدخول إلى المخبأ الذي كان يدير منه «هتلر» عملياته العسكرية الأخيرة خلال الحرب العالمية الثانية.

These extraordinary pictures reveal inside Hitler's bunker. This room is thought to have been the Fuhrer's command center conference room - which was partially burned out by SS troops and stripped of evidence by invading Russians in 1945

وتظهر الصور التي التقطها «ويليام» عددًا من الجنود الروس يقفون بجانب أثاث المخبأ، كما أظهرت الصور بقعًا من الدم وعددًا كبيرًا من الكتب واللوحات الفنية في المخبأ، الذي شهد انتحار أدولف هتلر عن عمر 56 سنة صديقته إيفا بروان عن عمر33 عامًا، حسب الصحيفة.
