As the buildings were blasted into rubble, pounded by Russian guns and bombs, before their troops and tanks, Hitler was hunkered down in his last headquarters – the dark and damp bunker under the Reich Chancellery. As the Third Reich began to crumble as fast as the city’s buildings, what was the state of mind of the tyrant? Only his closest and fan...

by Lázaro Droznes

This free recreation of the Adolf Eichmann´s trial in Jerusalem is a thorough review of all the issues that appear and will keep appearing as long the human kinds exists:
