MOSCOW, January 9 (Sputnik) — A German museum is planning to recreate the bunker complex where Adolf Hitler spent his last days in 1945, German news portal The Local has reported.
"We're just in the planning stages, the architects are working on it," the director of the museum, Ingo Mersmann said Thursday, as quoted by The Local.
"We want this to be an educational experience so that families or groups of school kids can see how it really was: to experience the tiny rooms and the dampness of the bunker. We want to recreate it to show people," Mersmann said as quoted by the news portal.
Previously Top Secret reconstructed Osama bin Laden's hiding place. Props from the James bond film and a hat which belonged to Fidel Castro are among the museum's showpieces, according to The Local.
Hitler's original bunker was captured by Soviet forces shortly after the German dictator committed suicide on April 30, 1945. In 1947, the bunker was destroyed and the location turned into a car park. In 2006, local authorities placed a signboard with a plan of the bunker and historical facts.
