New Documentary Claims Hitler Died In 1965, Did Not Commit Suicide After WWII
Mediaite ^ | 12/30/12 | Anjali Sareen

According to director/producer Noam Shalev and researcher Pablo Weschler, Adolf Hitler lived out his last days in an luxurious Argentinian hotel, instead of committing suicide in a Berlin bunker as previously thought. Their new documentary, Hitler in Argentina, attempts to make their case and is set to be released next year.

Shalev doesn’t claim to be 100 percent certain about his theory. “We will never know the truth,” he says. “But there is enough evidence to build an alternative theory about what happened to Hitler.”

Weschler adds, “No one believed the Russians’ story of Hitler’s suicide in the bunker. As early as the summer of 1945, there were headlines asking, ‘Where is Hitler?’ all over the world.”

Recently declassified FBI documents were the push to Shalev and Weschler to begin their film. They long believed that British intelligence officer and historian Hugh Trevor-Roper’s investigation into Hitler’s death was “unprofessional,” because Russian troops did not allow access to many forensic investigators.

“In those days, the FBI, not the CIA, was responsible for South America,” says Weschler. “And in declassified documents, we see that the FBI took very seriously the possibility that Hitler fled to Argentina.”

In fact, the FBI was so convinced of this possibility that they set up a special unit to investigate. Shalev and Weschler believe they can determine Hitler’s exact whereabouts after WWII. Italian journalist Patrick Burnside wrote a book entitled Hitler’s Escape about the dictator’s journey, and the pair used it as a guide.

“The Eden Hotel in La Falda, Cordoba [in Argentina] was owned by Ida and Walter Eichhorn, who were close friends of Hitler,” Weschler explains. “Hitler sent them a Mercedes Benz as a gift. It was the first Benz in Argentina.”

According to an FBI letter from September 1945, it was believed the Eichhorns would provide Hitler shelter if he ever needed it. Weschler also claims to have found former hotel employees who say they met Hitler and waited on him after the war.

The most important evidence to Shalev and Weschler comes in the form of DNA testing done on Hitler’s skill fragments in 2009, fragments that were recovered from the Berlin bunker.

“They showed that they couldn’t have been Hitler’s skull because they were from a woman under 40,” Weschler says. “The more you look into it, the less credible the official version becomes, and the more plausible an alternative theory seems.”

Is this an Oliver Stone documentary ... or something!

We will never know the truth, so why not give an alternate theory. Guess he’s sure no one can disprove him.

adolph eichman ended his career by giving it all up to the OSS. They brought him to America, then turned him loose. His next job was to buy the Indianapolis trolly system and ship it to Argentina ~ he accompanied the shipment and wasn't seen until years later.

GM was very interested in buying up trolleys and interurbans and getting them shipped out of the country ~ they wanted to sell cars, and imagined they could push the issue of building better roads for those cars to ride on if there were no rail options for local and regional travel.

Sounds bizarre, but they worked with others to dismantle interurban systems and city trollies. They didn't get them all though.

Now, how was it the US government ended up with a serious ownership position in the new GM as it took over the old GM records?

Was it the Eichman connection, or maybe it was Hitler, or other henchmen! And why is it Obamugabe finds it so easy to work with these guys if he is not, himself, a Nazi?

Hitler blew his brains out in that bunker. Stalin used what was left of his skull as an ashtray.

End of story.

Nah. Not possible for Adolph to keep his yap shut. He would have had books and propaaganda speeches for a fifth reich within a few years if he had lived.

“Hitler sent them a Mercedes Benz as a gift. It was the first Benz in Argentina.”

Did he send over a mechanic to service/work on it, for them? Parts?

Just wondering.

“We will never know the truth,” he says. “But there is enough evidence to make a guy rich.”

I thought he lived in a Argentinian penthouse suite with Elvis, JFK, Howard Hughes, Jimmy Hoffa, and Amelia Earhart all on the same floor.

These days I’m willing to believe anything is possible. Afterall, Howdy Doody was re-elected.

Good idea. Get a theory that can’t be proved or disproved and get a bunch of investors and a book deal or two.

Hummmm? Sounds like it could be used elsewhere too.

Plus the Soviets recovered the body and discreetly disposed of it after cremation in the 60s or 70s.

I think that got publicized after the Stasi archives were made public.

“They showed that they couldn’t have been Hitler’s skull because they were from a woman under 40,”

So “Hitler was really a woman” will be my next book.

I have a copy of a Readers Digest Article in 1963 proposing that Hitler was a live in South America. At that time it was a real possibility.

DNA says the skull found in the bunker was not his.

From many years of watching police procedurals I can confidently say "No body, no dead."

Hitler was alive. I know because I saw him when we rode in a black helicopter together.

He's still alive at the center of the Earth. Jake Busey put his brain in a robot. A fine company like The Asylum wouldn't have made a movie out of it if it wasn't true.
