Skip to comments.New Documentary Claims Hitler Died In 1965, Did Not Commit Suicide After WWII
Posted on 12/30/2012 4:51:05 PM PST by Borges
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 doesnt 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 Hitlers 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-Ropers investigation into Hitlers 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 Hitlers exact whereabouts after WWII. Italian journalist Patrick Burnside wrote a book entitled Hitlers Escape about the dictators 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 Hitlers skill fragments in 2009, fragments that were recovered from the Berlin bunker.
They showed that they couldnt have been Hitlers 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.
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?
We will never know the truth, he says. But there is enough evidence to make a guy rich.”
Ping! Thought you would be entertained by this.
I thought he lived in a Argentinian penthouse suite with Elvis, JFK, Howard Hughes, Jimmy Hoffa, and Amelia Earhart all on the same floor.
Reminds me of an old episode of “Soap.”
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 couldnt have been Hitlers skull because they were from a woman under 40,
So “Hitler was really a woman” will be my next book.
Joe Stalin lived in Peoria until last year, he traded pork bellies for a living.
Barnum was right.
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.
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.
Is he related to Irish journalist Pietro Bianchi?
My dad knew him when we were living (in exile) in Paraguay. Now it can be told.
Newspapers in Mexico run stories like this two or three times a year.
You can find a picture of Elvis and Michael Jackson living in a single wide.
As if it’s not strange enough that an unidentified muslim was elected for a second term as POTUS?
Robot Hitler’s on the Moon now? Well, he threatened to go there and set up rocket bases and then blow up all of Earth’s non-Aryan races, and we did nothing to stop him.
I favor the north minehead scenario myself as well documented by Monty Python.
%%% Hitler blew his brains out in that bunker. Stalin used what was left of his skull as an ashtray.
End of story. %%%
Please cite a veritable source, else it is less believable than the documentary
I was just watching HELLBOY and the old dude explained to the young FBI agent that Hitler died in 1965.
FBI agent: ‘Hitler died in 1945..”
OLD DUDE: ‘did he now?’
I’ll go with the Soviet’s (Stalin’s) obsession ....
He was NOT going to leave Berlin alive.
On the other hand, I don’t understand the “obsession” with certain neo-liberals (re-writers ??) of history who seem almost determined to “want” him alive.
You’ve got to be joking on this one, right?
They had to ‘kill off’ Hitler so that the Nazi’s would give up.
Did you two not read the article? The skull that was claimed to be Hitler’s was found out to be a 40 year old woman.
The best evidence for Hilter surviving the war is the Hellboy movie.
Did you not realize the bit of fun when you see it. Did you not realize ... that this yokel’s attempt is perpetrated every day. As was said possibly another get rich quick scheme or a new way to re-write history. Which seems to be the rage. Guess he has lots of time to sit around and think up these ideas.
Yep, that’s him.
Sorry if you were being funny.
But the Nazi/Argentina rumor has been around since months after the bunker was discovered.
Ja! Mr. Hilter! Ve know!
Everybody knows that old Adolf, using the nom de guerre Hilter, lived for many years in a small boarding house in Minehead, Somerset, along with Ron Vibbentrop and Heinrich Bimmler.
I saw it on the telly. So there.
