Last Survivor from Führer Bunker Still Alive – Part 2

Part 1Part 2

The strangest thing was the sight of the two guitar players at the “Kaiserhof” subway station in Berlin. “I come out of this bunker of death, all that drama, and someone’s playing music,” recalls Rochus Misch. “They played Hawaiian music!” It was May 2, 1945, at six o’clock in the morning.

The above is from an interview Misch gave to Der Spiegel in 2007 and is more interesting. Misch was quite the chatterbox and talked to the press and most anyone else over the decades. (He made his living running a paint store a few blocks from where the bunker had been).
