"Don Quixote" is first published, Prohibition is ratified and goes into effect, Hitler moves underground, and the space shuttle Columbia takes off for the last time, all on this day.
1945: Adolf Hitler moves into his underground bunker, the so-called Führerbunker, near the Reich Chancellery in Berlin, Germany. The bunker then became the epicenter of the Nazi regime until the last week of World War II. Hitler married Eva Braun there during the last week of April 1945, shortly before they both committed suicide. The rear entrance to the bunker can be seen here in this 1947 photo.
