Perhaps the most well known murderer of the twentieth century was Adolf Hitler. As Fuhrer in Germany, Hitler was in power from 1933 to 1945. His marriage to Eva Braun lasted only hours before they reportedly crushed cyanide tablets in their mouths and shot each other in the head. To prevent the public from viewing and possibly displaying their dead bodies, they were also doused in gasoline and burned outside their secret bunker. It has been said that Hitler's brain resides in a museum in a undisclosed basement. Hitler killed at least 11 million innocent victims before his death. Fritz Lang's movie "M" was used as a nazi propaganda film in the early 1940's. Soldiers were told that Peter Lorre's character was thought to be the face of a "typical Jew".
