Actor Bruno Ganz who played Adolf Hitler in the 2004 movie Downfall has died aged 77 at his home in Zurich on 15 Feb 2019 Friday (local time).

He was diagnosed with cancer of the colon in 2018.

Though Bruno Ganz was a prominent figure in German-language film and television for over 50 years, he also starred in English-language movies, including The Reader and The Manchurian Candidate.

Bruno Ganz received the Honorary Swiss Film Award in 2017.

Bruno Ganz’s most famous role was when he played Adolf Hitler in the movie Downfall (German: Der Untergang) which talks about the story of Adolf Hitler’s final days during World War 2.

In this movie Downfall, a scene in which Adolf Hitler was in great anger while he was reprimanding his generals has become a popular meme on social media.

This meme has been used multiple times to spawn parodies online, often using the film’s original language, but substituted with fake subtitles to often express a different scenario of great anger or disappointment of a current ongoing event happening during when the parody was been made.
