Propoganda leader under Hitler. He was initially buried along with his wife and children in East Germany. These remains were removed in 1982 (some reports say this happened as early as 1970) by the request of Yuri Andropov, Secretary General of the USSR, 1982-84. Andropov, former KGB chief, fearing that Neo-Nazi's may discover the location, had the graves opened. All remains (still in a state of decomposition) were ground-up and put into a nearby Danube River tributary.
