I'm not sure if this has been written about before but I find this subject fascinating so here goes.
The commonly accepted story is that on April 30, 1945, with the Soviets practically knocking on his front door, Hitler along with his new wife Eva
Braun committed suicide in Berlin.
But is that what really happened? Two book's I've read Hitler's Escape by Ron T. Hansig and Hitler's Fate by H.D. Baumann, cast
doubt on that story.
1. There was no forensic evidence proving that the body or bodies recovered by the Soviets were Hitler or Braun.
2. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin was convinced that Hitler had indeed escaped.
3. J. Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI, was also convinced that Hitler had escaped as did Dwight D. Eisenhower.
4. The bodies that were taken out of the fuherbunker were never identified as Hitler or Braun by anyone who would have been in a position to
5. The pathetic, incoherent, shambling Hitler so often portrayed in the media appeared suddenly. On April 23, 1945. The swift change was noticed by
almost everyone associated with Hitler in the last days of World War II.
6. In July of 1945, three German U-Boats appeared along the coast of Argentina.
7. At the Soviets insistence, Hitler was tried in absentia at Nuremberg.
Basically the premise of the two books is that Hitler escaped from Berlin at the end of WWII and made his way to Argentina where he lived until 1959.
The shambling wreck of a Fuhrer seen after April 23, 1945 was a double kept there by Heinrich Muller, head of the Gestapo. The supposed evidence put
forth by the Soviets that Hitler was dead was a hastily cobbled together story, made for political reasons.
I find the idea that Hitler escaped to be very eerie. And these books do bring up some very specific and well though out doubts to the official story
of Hitler's death.
