Bones of Hitler Deputy, Rudolf Hess, were Exhumed, Burned and Buried at Sea in the Middle of Night
In a bit of strange news from Germany, the bones of Adolf Hitler’s deputy Rudolf  Hess were exhumed under cover of darkness, burned and secretly scattered  at sea after his grave became a shrine for thousands of neo-Nazis, a  cemetery official said Thursday. 
Workers removed Hess’ remains  from his family’s plot with the permission of his relatives, cremated  the bones and dispersed them before dawn on Wednesday, said Andreas  Fabel, a cemetery administrator in the Bavarian town of Wunsiedel.
"There is now one less place of evil in the  world," said Elan Steinberg of the New York-based American Gathering of  Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants.
