Today, more than sixty years after Second World War, the Fuehrer Bunker - where Hitler committed suicide in 1945 - has become a place of myth. To date, over twenty different ground plans and countless contradicting descriptions of the bunker have been published. Recently, plans, measurements and photographs of the Fuehrer Bunker were discovered among the files of the former East German Secret Service. Using these documents, Keystone Animation created a full color 3D model of the Reich's Chancellery and the Fuehrer Bunker. The bunker was recreated in detail to finally demystify Hitler’s last refuge.
Der Führerbunker (1935-1942)
shows the construction of the Tiefbunker of the Reich Chancellery, and the construction measures taken to strengthen the Vorbunker. More than sixty different building stages of the Tiefbunker were digitally reconstructed for this film. Thanks to a step by step depiction of the entire structure of the bunker complex, the eventful construction history of the Fuehrer Bunker is made understandable for the viewer.
