The Soviet women in the Bunker is a scene in the extended edition of Downfall that is rarely used in parodies.

In Downfall

Outside the Führerbunker, Johannes Hentschel looks at the pit where the burned corpses of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun were supposed to be and then at burned corpses of Joseph Goebbels and Magda Goebbels

He returns to the bunker, where he sees Hans Krebs' and Wilhelm Burgdorf's bodies, their heads covered by handkerchiefs, with blood on the wall. Hentschel hears some noises and sees a group of Soviet women, nurses to be more exact, looting through the bunker. They see him and shout at him to hold. Hentschel raises his hands in surrender. The lead woman asks him where Hitler is. He tells them that Hitler and his wife killed themselves. She then asks him to be taken to Eva's wardrobe.

One of them approaches the room of the Goebbels children and he shouts at her to not open the door. The lead woman suspicious opens the door and finds the children's decaying corpses. The lead woman exits with a horrified expression and looks at Hentschel. He tells her to come along. The women are later rummaging through Eva's clothes as Hentschel looks on.

In Downfall Parodies

The scene is rarely used in Downfall Parodies. This could be related to the disturbing content (the dead children).

One notable example of how the scene is used can be found in The Assassination of Hitler by Hitler Rants Parodies.

In one parody, the Soviet women are looking for the toilet. In other parodies, the Soviet women are in the bunker to meet either Hermann Fegelein or Hitler. In yet another parody, Hitler rick-rolls the Soviets.

The disturbing nature of this scene is utilized in WonkyTonkBotty's Halloween 2017 horror parody, Hitler Enters the Red Room, in the post-mortem of Hitler.
