In previously classified documents recently uncovered, it now appears that the FBI had knowledge of Hitler not only surviving the end of the war but in fact being alive well into the 1980s.
Some of the specifics of the 203-page dossier have been blacked out making certain passages undecipherable but if the document is genuine, it could well throw into doubt the effectiveness and purpose of the FBI, not to mention open the door for similar cases to be revisited.
The beginning portion of the document, dated 1945, hinges on an interview with an Argentinian individual seeking asylum to the U.S in exchange on the location of Hitler. The individual in question, whose identity is not revealed for their own safety, claims to have helped Hitler hide after he arrived by submarine to the country.
The submarine is said to have arrived only weeks after the fall of Berlin and contained as many as 50 people, including many high ranking Nazi party members and a woman thought to be Eva Braun. The party was then met by contacts who loaded the luggage and effects of the party up and transported them inland. Suggesting that if indeed this was Hitler, that the retreat had been planned extensively a long time before the end of the war.
Following the arrival, Hitler is later reported to have traveled to Panama before eventually settling in Brazil, although there are several different accounts of his actions once in South America.
The bodies discovered in 1945 thought to be those of Hitler and Eva Braun could in which case must have been decoys aimed at throwing the allies off the scent. Hitler like many dictators employed body doubles for much of his reign, Gustav Weler being one of Hitler’s that was known to Allied forces.
American President John F. Kennedy was also convinced of Hitler’s survival of the end of the war, and wrote a series of correspondences detailing his thoughts on the subject which were recently discovered and auctioned in commemoration of the hundredth year after his birth.⬇
