The German embassy in Sweden flying the flag at half mast the day Hitler died, 1945 | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The German embassy in Sweden flying the flag at half mast the day Hitler died, 1945

The embassy is an official state function and since the Third Reich outlived Hitler by six weeks, it would be more odd if they did not raise the flag when the head of state died. Actually Hitler’s death wasn’t officially announced until May 1st, but the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (German High Command) obviously got the news well before that and might have informed embassies so they could bring the news out worldwide on May 1st, but perhaps the flag got lowered to half mast prematurely in Sweden.
