Hitler knew that the soviet union troops were entering into Germany and were heading close to his bunker in Berlin. Hitler was told that he should try to escape, Hitler rejected because he heard rumors that if the Russians caught him they would put him in a big cage and drag him around like an animal. Hitler decided that committing suicide would spare him the humiliation. So he asked Eva Braun to marry him and asked her to commit suicide. Eva agreed because she thought that she couldn't live without Hitler, So Hitler and Eva took sleeping pills and Hitler also shot himself. In Hitler's will he ordered his body be cremated and barried well so that the Russians couldn't get him.

Hitler ordered Eva to kill herself. so the others would not get her as well because she would be in troble to.
