Hitler"s bunker: his final days (not on exam) In 1945 hitler decided that he needed a secretary to keep track of the events transpiring in his life. Hitler even allows her to escape near the end. The secretary did flee, and created a memoir of hitler"s life. When he moves into the bunker, he makes it clear that he doesn"t anticipate ever moving out of it again; he would die there. His favourite painting which he brought with him everywhere was brought to the bunker, along with a few clothes, a pilot, and a chauffeur (even though he didn"t use them). The bunker is 3 stories high, but underground. All rooms were painted grey, walls dripped because of the moisture in the area, and had quarters provided for all of his workers (including a dentist). Everything was run on generators, and at night they went off. The smell was atrocious (there was not a lot of hygiene or running water).
