S1 E2: Forensic scientist Mark Benecke investigates the death of Adolf Hitler and takes viewers from The Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, to Lausanne Switzerland and then deep into Russian archives where fascinating evidence has been kept secret for almost half a century. At two different archives in Moscow, Benecke analyzes Hitler's alleged skull, his teeth and even the remains of his beautiful mistress, Eva Braun. These strange artifacts will reveal many things for the first time - including how Hitler killed himself. Was it poison? A bullet in the head or both? In Hitler's Skull, viewers learn why these shards of bones and teeth that may or may not belong to Hitler have been kept secret for years by the old Soviet regime.
