We all know who Hitler was and that our history books say that he died in 1945 in a suicide pact with his newlywed, Eva Braun. New information gives a different theory stating that Hitler did not die, but escaped to live under the radar in South America.
Is it possible that we were lied to all this time, and that the history you have been taught in school is a complete fabrication?
Official records hold that the brutal dictator, shamed in defeat in April 1945, Shot himself in the head in a bunker in Berlin while his wife took a lethal cyanide pill. Their bodies were then quickly burned and buried in a shallow grave.
But what if this was another distraction while the Führer was actually whisked away in a shadowy plot to ensure he would not fall into the clutches of advancing soviets? I know, I know this all might seem a bit tin-foily, but just stick with me for a minute.
Historian Abel Basti detailed a hypothesis in a new edition of his book published in Argentina, “Hitler in Exile” an account now making headlines, even with such mainstream media as the Huffington Post.
“There was an agreement with the US that Hitler would run away and that he shouldn’t fall into the hands of the Soviet Union,” Basti said. “This also applies to many scientists, the military, and spies who later took part in the struggle against the Soviet regime.”
Basti believes that Hitler slipped to safety via a tunnel beneath the Chancellery connected to Tempelhof Airport, where a helicopter was waiting to whisk the Dictator to Spain. Travelling first to Canary Islands, Hitler made his way to Argentina on a U-boat, where he lived for ten years before settling in Paraguay under the protection of Dictator Alfredo Stroessner.
Wealthy families who helped him over the years were responsible for the organization of his funeral,” Basti explained. “Hitler was buried in an underground bunker, which is now an elegant hotel in the city of Asuncion. In 1973, the entrance to the bunker was sealed, and 40 people came to say goodbye to Hitler. One of those who attended [the funeral], Brazilian serviceman Fernando Nogueira de Araujo, then told a newspaper about the ceremony.”
Basti is not alone in this theory:
A CIA operative with 21 years’ experience, Bob Baer, and “one of America’s most elite intelligence officers,” described something similar on a documentary series for the History Channel called Hunting Hitler, which aired in 2015.
Baer and his team, claimed they discovered proof that Hitler escaped, using 700 pages of declassified FBI documents. One investigator noted that “American Army officials in Germany have not located Hitler’s body nor is there any reliable source that Hitler is dead.”
But perhaps the most damning piece of evidence lies in Russia. With the Soviet occupation of Germany, Hitler’s supposed remains were quickly hidden and sent off to Russia, never to be seen again. That is until 2009, when an archaeologists from Connecticut State, Nicholas Bellatoni was allowed to perform DNA testing on one of the skull fragments recovered.
What he sent offset off a reaction through the intelligence and scholarly communities. Not only did the DNA not match any recorded samples thought to be Hitler’s, they did not match Eva Braun’s familiar DNA either.
“The bone seemed very thin; male bone tends to be more robust. And the sutures where the skull plates came together seemed to correspond to someone under 40”
Bellantoni’s suspicions from physical examination were confirmed authentic when they were backed up by the molecular, genetic analysis. The skull, which the soviets had proffered as proof of Hitler’s self-inflicted gunshot for decades, belonged to an unidentified female.
Whether or not you make a habit of doubting official stories, you should be able to see that despite the story we have been spoon fed all these years, there is credible evidence to prove the contrary.
