17 августа 1987, ровно 30 лет назад Рудольф Гесс, человек №2 в Рейхе, ""покончил с собой"" в тюрьме Шпандау.
Британцы в очень мутном контескте наполовину признали факт убийства, слив фамилии агентов, которые (allegedly, allegedly!) могли осуществить акцию.

Интересно, что по документам, рассекреченным в этом году (чсх опять не все), UK repeatedly pressed for Rudolf Hess's release from Spandau prison.

The files show the British government stepped up its efforts to have him freed. In 1979, just after becoming Foreign Secretary, Lord Carrington wrote a particularly strong note to his Soviet counterpart Andrei Gromyko. "It would be both inhumane and pointless," he said, "to insist that this old man should die in prison."
In all, the British made 11 unilateral appeals for Hess to be freed. The Americans and French supported them in a further nine. The Soviets always refused to consider the case.
Nearly 40 years after the end of the war, Soviet politicians and diplomats argued that the release of such a leading figure in the Nazi regime would not be understood by the Soviet people, or by others who had suffered.

[..] Each of the 11 unilateral British appeals, which dated back to 1957, along with 14 others made separately, or jointly, by the US and French authorities were rejected by an unwavering Soviet insistence that the release of the former deputy Nazi leader.

В принципе такое противоречие неплохо согласовывается с теорией о том, что в 1987 в Шпандау погиб совсем не Гесс, а его двойник. То есть легально освободить не удалось - подменили, и потом на всякий случай двойника ликвидировали. В любом случае, тюрьма была закрыта, здания по понятным причинам снесены, останки кремированы, прах развеян.

С Хаусхоффером, изобретателем геополитики и большим энтузиастом евразийства в варианте "оси Берлин -Москва -Токио", 1920
