I have extensively looked into the idea of Hitler escaping to South America, and I think the most surprising thing that one could discover on such a
journey is that there were witnesses who saw him in Argentina, with influential people who would have hidden him if he ever came. So did he? I think
that it should be noted that the bone fragments unearthed outside the Fuhrer Bunker have never been proven to have come from either Hitler or his new
There were no witnesses to the suicide itself, and we know that Hitler had look-alikes. If he had wanted to, he could very well had escaped via a
secret hatch in the bunker without anyone seeing him. He could have hopped on a plane that would have taken him to a U-boat, which transported him to
South America. In fact, I believe this is probably what happened, IF he escaped.
There is one thing that makes me believe that he likely did not escape however. His drug dependence. His personal physician was feeding him a variety
of drugs, both through intravenous injections and tablets, and Hitler had grown so dependent on his physician because of this fact that he kept him by
his side virtually at all times. Before Hitler supposedly committed suicide he dismissed his doctor, and I just feel that he would have taken him with
him if he were going to escape.
There is another reason as well. By this point, probably through drug use, Hitler was absolutely out of it, at least in a way. We know that Germany
lost the war because of Hitler's meddling, and many of his decisions are consistent with what we know about users of stimulants today. His ideas
became more and more detached, as he himself did, and his decisions were often not feasible. In fact, his "no retreat" order alone limited the
Wermacht to simply sitting there and being obliterated or captured, despite the fact that his forces were exceptional defensive fighters, and
performed quite well while fighting and withdrawing. His commanders were exceptional in some instances as well, yet they were limited by his personal
Rommel was one of the few people who would stand up to him, yet he still would not listen to this very able commander. Anyway, Hitler had always been
like that in a way, but it became worse as time went on, probably through drug use. It was a big factor at least. So by the time the Red Army was
overrunning Berlin, I think it is quite possible that Hitler was to dejected, convinced everyone was out to betray him, etc., and that he likely did
end it all right there. It was not an option to let the Red Army capture him, nor the Americans or British for that matter, but definitely not the
Soviets, who were closest to Berlin at the time.
My point is that by that time there was no guarantee that he could even get out of Berlin. If he were going to escape, why not do it a tad bit sooner?
Perhaps this was his escape plan all along, and he very well might have escaped. I don't know which stories to believe, but there is some compelling
evidence for the escape theory. It is just that, knowing Hitler's state of mind at the time, I don't think it likely that he was all that worried
about saving his own life. He even felt the German people had failed him to a certain extent, and because of this, he probably did not have much to
live for in his mind.
