Couple find ‘Nazi cyanide capsule like one Hitler’s wife used to kill herself’

A Brit couple were shocked to find a Nazi cyanide capsule while walking on a beach on the Isle of Wight.

The cylinder appears to be similar to a sealed vial Adolf Hitler’s wife Eva Braun used to kill herself.

Emma Lofthouse and Shaun Bloomer made the discovery last weekend, and immediately contacted police.

Cops allowed the couple to keep it, and after further research, concluded it is likely to be a Nazi cyanide capsule.

Ms Lofthouse said: “There is still a clear liquid inside the container, in a glass ampoule.

“We thought it might be seawater, but it appears to be sealed shut.

“We contacted the police and they came and had a look, but they didn’t know what it was.

“They said they could either take it away and destroy it or we could keep it.

“We didn’t want to throw it away – it’s a part of history – but we’re not really sure where to take it.

“Everyone we’ve shown it to has said they’ve never seen anything quite like it before.

“We’ve done a bit of research and concluded it could be a Nazi cyanide capsule.

“There are no markings on the capsule but I suppose they could have been warn away over time.”

At the end of the Second World War, leading Nazis took their lives using cyanide pills.

Adolf Hitler’s wife, Eva Braun, took a pill to avoid capture by the allies.

Hitler also killed himself, but shot himself in the head as Russian troops closed in on his Berlin bolthole.

Spies were often given poison before going behind enemy lines to take to avoid being captured alive.
