Six months after Allied Forces liberated German concentration camps, a military tribunal formed at Nuremberg to prosecute Nazi war criminals. Some of the most dangerous were brought to justice--but not all. Over 4,000 former Nazis went to work for the U.S. government, without the public's knowledge, to help fight the Soviet Union. Reinhard Gehlen, an intelligence officer for Hitler's General Staff, was tapped to head the U.S. intelligence program in West Germany to spy on the Russians. At the same time, former Nazi scientists and engineers were welcomed onto American soil. In 1998, a bill was finally signed into law that mandated declassification of documents concerning recruitment of former Nazis.

While there is some evidence pointing to a recovered crash in Germany in 1936, and the subsequent myriad attempts at Nazi saucer projects soon after, there isn't much to show any success in that area.
It's probably a safe bet though, that following Roswell, some Paperclip scientists were tasked with assisting the reverse-engineering project.
