Hitler’s bunker, Berlin. One of the concerns about the handling of Nazi sites in Germany has been the danger of them becoming neo-Nazi shrines. Perhaps the location at most risk of this is the bunker in Berlin where Hitler spent the last months of his life before committing suicide there in April 1945. Until the reunification of Germany in the early 90s, the site of the bunker was buried beneath the course of the Berlin Wall.
