A young John F Kennedy once pondered over Adolf Hitler’s death, wondering whether the Nazi leader had really died or was still alive, according to a diary he kept while traveling through Europe in 1945. The 28-year-old future president kept a 61-page diary of his experiences, which will be up for sale at RR Auction in April. Kennedy passed the diary to Deidre Henderson, who was his research assistant at the time he was a Senator. The diary reveals that during his time in Berlin, Kennedy wrote about visiting Hitler’s bunker only months after Germany surrendered in the Second World War. “The room where Hitler is supposed to have met his death showed scorched walls and traces of fire,” he wrote. “There is no complete evidence, however, that the body that was found was Hitler’s body.”

Despite the on-screen chemistry between Bogart and Bergman, they hardly spoke . The only time the pair bonded was when they had lunch with others on the set. Dooley Wilson , who portrayed Rick's sidekick Sam, could not really play the piano. Wilson was a professional drummer who faked it! The movie's music was recorded at the same time as the film, with Elliot Carpenter tickling the ivories behind a curtain. Carpenter was positioned in view of Wilson, who mimicked his hand movements.

Conrad Veidt , who played Major Strasser, was actually a German refugee himself, who was well known in his country's theatrical community for his hatred of the Nazis. He was forced to flee Germany because the SS learned of his anti-Nazi activities — and had sent a death squad after him! The large numbers of European exiles fleeing the war were a boon to the studio's casting department — and added greatly to the emotional impact of the film.

Voronenkov had been receiving threats since he fled Russia last year along with his wife Maria Maksakova, amid an investigation alleging he was involved in property fraud ― a case he dismissed as politically motivated. In Ukraine, Voronenkov went from being a Putin supporter to a vocal opponent of his former government and president. He gave numerous interviews in which he made comparisons between Nazi Germany and contemporary Russia, or described Putins annexation of Crimea as illegal. Although this would seemingly make him a natural target for Russia, Voronenkov also drew criticism from Ukrainians and Russian opposition members who viewed his about-face as insincere. The Russian government, meanwhile, called allegations of its involvement in the murder absurd. The conflicting statements and details of Voronenkovs killing have echoes of the incident involving Gorokhov the day before.

Historians have written an extraordinary amount about Hitler, the Third Reich, and World War II–so much, that it’s hard to imagine anyone could find something novel to say about this dark period of history. But German journalist Norman Ohler has done just that. In his new book, Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich , Ohler looks at how Hitler became increasingly dependent on a mixture of cocaine and opiates during the wartime years, all of which could have influenced his decision making. Meanwhile, despite Nazi propaganda against “degenerateculture, German troops consumed large quantities of crystal meth during major military operations. Some 35 million meth tablets were ingested during the 1940 invasion of France alone. Ohler gathered much of his evidence while reviewing the papers of Hitler’s private physician, Dr. Theodor Morell. And while some scholars have criticized Ohler’s account , Ian Kershaw, arguably the world’s leading authority on Hitler and Nazi Germany, has called Blitzed “a serious piece of scholarship” and “very well researched.
