Hitler Escaped To Argentina Theory

Hitler heroically had before the start of WW2 connected his personal fate with the outcome this war.

Apparently, not only in words, but also in deeds: He was alleged to have committed suicide on April 30 1945, when the war was irrevocably lost.

His suicide is also claimed by authentic witnesses, who also lived in the Führerbunker, and it can therefore be possibly considered as a fact of history.

Despite this, rumours and theories that Hitler survived the war are widespread and popular.

And there are many theories about what happened with Adolf Hitler after the fall of Berlin.

These are all hoaxes; not based on the facts.

Some of such rumours and theories say that Hitler escaped to continue the National Socialist struggle from a different country.

A particular popular version is the theory that Adolf Hitler would have escaped during the fall of Berlin in 1945 and gone to Argentina, which is the FBI account.

Hitler would've fled by "Rat Lines" ran by the Catholic Church like it was reported various European Nationalists did after WW2.
US President Donald Trump declassified some of the JFK files in October 2017.
These included CIA documents that found someone who looked like and claimed to be Hitler was living in Colombia for several months in 1954.
Although official history contends Hitler committed suicide with his newlywed wife, Eva Braun, on April 30 1945 and their corpses were burned by others in the Berlin respected Argentine journalist and historian  Abel Basti claims proof the story is a fabrication.
According to Basti's meticulous research, the leader of the Third Reich spent his last years as an art dealer and had facial plastic surgery to change his appearance. Those are just two of the astounding revelations hei documents in his book, "Hitler's Exile".
The claim that Hitler and some high-ranking Schutzstaffel officers escaped Germany and fled to South America is not new.
Iin his well-documented, "The Hitler Survival Myth" [1981], Donald McKale identifies the earliest source of the myth of Hitler's escape to the southern hemisphere as the unexpected surrender of a German submarine in early July 1945 at Mar del Plata, Argentina.
"Several Buenos Aires newspapers, in defiance of Argentine Navy statements, said that rubber boats had been seen landing from it, and other submarines spotted in the area.
"On 16 July  1945, the "Chicago Times carried a sensational article on the Hitlers having slipped off to Argentina.
"Ladislao Szabó, a Hungarian advertiser, witnessed the arrival of the U-530 and saw its crew disembarking. He had heard that the destination was the German Antarctica and, mistakenly, made a supposition that Hitler had escaped to Antarctica, and published the book "Hitler está Vivo" [Hitler is Alive], where he speaks about the possible location of Hitler, in Queen's Maud properties, opposite the Weddel Sea, that was then renamed Neuschwabenland, when the area was explored in 1938/39 by the German expedition led by Captain Ritschter.
"Zsabó made the wrong assumption.
"Had he read the book by Professor Hugo Fernandez Artucio published in 1940, "Nazis en el Uruguay", [National Socialists in Uruguay] he would had discovered that there actually was a plan referring to German Antarctica, but this was nothing but the term they used for the Patagonia and that this information had been made public in New York in 1939"
When there's so much smoke there's usually a fire. Basti tracked down that fire during seven years of sometimes grueling investigations.

He personally visited German compounds surrounded by security and stern-faced guards, interviewed surviving witnesses in villages near the strongholds, and even obtained authenticated photographs of Hitler and Braun during their exile years.
Basti wrote that A. Hitler, E. Braun, and Führer's closest aides flew from the burning Berlin to Spain...and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean by three submarines and reached Argentina.
n July-August, 1945 Hitler and his group landed in the Rio Negro province near the Caleta de los Loros village and moved on further into Argentine.
Allegedly, the same secret route prepared by SS chief Himmler's staff was later used by Bormann, Mengele, and Eichmann.
Basti detailed the journey of A. Hitler and E. Braun across Argentina assisted by local National Socialist sympathizers and described the couple’s family life during which—despite the hardships of hiding—they even had children."
The Soviets weren't helpful on the matter of the German leader's death.
The Soviets continued to be difficult. They refused to allow Westerners into Berlin even after the surrender of Dönitz' government and the last armies in the field on 7-9 May 1945.

On 10 May, they announced the existence of the burned bodies in the Chancellory courtyard, but only allowed that one might be Hitler. The same report went on to say that his body might never be found.
On 6 June, a spokesman for the Soviet army in Berlin announced unequivocally that Hitler had committed suicide and that his body had been identified. Three days later, Marshall Zhukov, the head of the Soviet army gave a press conference with Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinski looking over his shoulder.

"We did not identify the body of Hitler", he said. "I can say nothing definite about his fate. He could have flown away from Berlin at the very last moment".
In an interview on "Deadline-Live", an Argentine news program, journalist Santiago Romero interviewed Abel Basti about Hitler's escape, life in Patagonia, and the events that followed World War Two.

Interview with Basti:
Romero: What is your opinion on Hitler’s Escape?
Basti: "Hitler escaped via air from Austria to Barcelona. The last stage of his escape was in a submarine, from Vigo, heading straight to the coast of Patagonia. Finally, Hitler and Eva Braun, in a car with a chauffeur and bodyguard—a motorcade of at least three cars—drove to Bariloche [Argentina]
"He took refuge in a place called San Ramon, about 15 miles east of that town. It is a property of about 250,000 acres with a lake-front view of Lake Nahuel Huapi, which had been German property since the early twentieth century, when it belonged to a German firm by the name of Schamburg-Lippe".
Romero: "On what basis do you claim that Hitler was in Spain after leaving his Berlin Bunker?"
Basti: "I was able to confirm the presence of Hitler in Spain thanks to a—now elderly—Jesuit priest, whose family members were friends of the National Socialist leader. And I have witnesses that allude to meetings he had with his entourage at the place where they stayed in Cantabria".
Romero: "From where did he leave to Patagonia?"
Basti: "All the evidence points to the Galician coast, which was a significant base of supplies for German submarines during the Battle of the Atlantic, to the extent that Churchill considered the possibility of invading it—an action that was scrapped when they built the code-breaking “Enigma” machine and managed to decipher German submarine fleet messages and the course of submarine warfare was reversed.
“There is the possibility that he left from Vigo or Ferrol, but it is almost certain that he did from Vigo, according to Britain’s MI6".
Romero: "What was Hitler’s life in Argentina like?"
Basti: "Hitler lived as a fugitive with his wife and his bodyguard. His first years were in Patagonia, and then he lived in the more northern provinces [of Argentina].
"In the early years, he held meetings in different parts of Argentina, and with other National Socialists in Paraguay, as well as with sympathizers from foreign countries.“He shaved his head and mustache, so he was not easily recognizable. He lived away from large urban areas, although he had a few meetings in Buenos Aires. He died in the sixties in Argentina.
"’m currently investigating where he was buried and how he lived his last days".
Romero: "Did you have access to documents from the former Soviet Union?"
Basti: "Until his death in 1953, Stalin always believed that Hitler had escaped. In 1945, Stalin told the Allies this same information. There are three different shorthand writings in which Stalin mentioned that the German leader had fled.
"In Argentina, I have interviewed people who had seen and met with Hitler. In the Russian archives, there is abundant documentation that shows that Hitler had escaped".
Romero: "How did your book impact the official story of Hitler’s death?"
Basti: "Despite the recent investigations that proved that Hitler’s remains at the Kremlin in Russia did not belong to him, most Russians have always rejected the theory that he escaped. The same applies to the nations involved in the war".
Father Krespi Link
Now a fragment of skull, believed for 64 years to have been from the remains of the Fuhrer, has been shown to be that of a woman aged between 20 and 40.

It is a sinister thought but conspiracy theorists all over the world will be asking once more: Did Hitler really die in his Bunker?
Historians have generally agreed since the end of the Second World War that, staring defeat in the face, an increasingly feeble and paranoid Hitler had married Eva Braun in the bowels of his Berlin Bnker after midnight on 29 April 1945, and later dictated his will. His physician Werner Haase, in response to Hitler's questions, had recommended a dose of cyanide and a gunshot to the head as the most reliable form of suicide.
Hitler, convinced of the treason of SS leader Heinrich Himmler, doubted the reliability of the SS-supplied cyanide tablets and had one tested on his dog Blondi, after which the dog died.
Following lunch on 30 April, with Soviet forces less than 500 metres from the Bunker, Hitler and Eva said goodbye to staff and fellow occupants, including the Göbbels family, private secretary Martin Bormann and military officers.
They went into Hitler's personal study at 2.30pm and at around 3.30pm some witnesses reported hearing a loud gunshot.
Those, including valet Heinz Linge, who went into the study reported the smell of almonds, consistent with cyanide gas. They said they saw Hitler slumped on his desk with a bullet wound to his head, a pistol on the floor and blood pooling on the arm of the sofa on which Eva lay beside him with no visible sign of injury.
Several witnesses said the bodies were then carried up to the emergency exit and into a small bombed-out garden behind the Chancellery where they were doused with petrol and set alight, then buried in a small crater when the Soviet shelling made it unsafe for the cremation to continue.

Seven and a half hours later, Red Army troops began storming the Chancellery and the remains of Hitler, his wife and two of his dogs were said to have been discovered in a shell crater by a Soviet soldier.
But were they?
The Soviet story changed regularly in the aftermath of the fall of Berlin and in the following years.

Conspiracy theorists point to suggestions that:
  • Josef Stalin told Western leaders at the Potsdam Conference in 1945 he believed Hitler may have escaped to Spain or South America.
  • Stalin's top army officer, Marshal Georgy Zhukov, said: "We found no corpse that could be Hitler's".
  • The acting chief of the US trial counsel at Nuremberg, Thomas J Dodd, said: "No one can say he is dead". The most convincing evidence of Hitler's suicide came from the testimonies of those who were in the Bunker — but they did not all agree on the details.
  • Hitler's bodyguard Rochus Misch told  how he heard someone shout to Hitler's Valet, "Junge, Junge, I think it's happened".
After the bodies were carried upstairs, Misch said: "Someone shouted to me, 'Hurry upstairs, they're burning the boss!'

But Misch decided not to go, in case the "last witnesses" were shot.

He was later captured after fleeing the Bunker and spent eight years in Soviet prison camps.
Details of a Soviet autopsy on the remains they found, released years later, apparently showed gunshot wounds and cyanide poisoning. The remains were repeatedly buried and exhumed by Russian agents during their relocation from Berlin to a new facility at Magdeburg. There, they were put in an unmarked grave with the bodies of propaganda minister Josef Göbbels, his wife and their six children.
When the facility was due to be handed over to the East German government in 1970, the KGB, it is said, exhumed all ten bodies, burned them and threw the ashes in the river Elbe to prevent the area becoming a National Socialist shrine. They kept Hitler's jaw and part of his skull — the fragment now thrown into doubt by US archaeologist Nick Bellantoni, who was given permission to examine the artefacts in the Russian state archive.
Other discrepancies which have muddied the waters include a photo released by Soviets at the time of the fall of Berlin which purported to be the body of Hitler, shot in the forehead. It is now thought to be one of Hitler's body doubles.
Others who believe he escaped subscribe to a variety of conspiracy theories. The most popular include one or more of these elements:
  • Hitler and Eva Braun escaped from the bunker on April 22, 1945, leaving behind doubles who killed themselves or were murdered
  • They were flown to Norway where German subs were waiting to transport them away from Europe.
  • They were helped by the Vatican to escape to Spain then Argentina.
  • Two German submarines seized by Argentina after the war had delivered Hitler to a secret National Socialist base in the heart of Antarctica.
  • The Falklands War was fought by Britain not to protect the islanders but the secret that British authorities knew about the National Socialist base in nearby Antarctica

Father Krespi

It has been claimed Father Krespi was an Alias used by Adolf Hitler during his supposed tenure in Argentina from 1945 until his death in 1993.

The claim is widely believed to be a Hoax.

According to the story, the war has ended and a former National Socialist Intelligence Officer named Magda Zeitfeld had offered her services to the United States Government. Magda's father was a pioneer in the use of implanted facial prosthetics, and had operated the largest plastic surgery clinic in Germany. This clinic had received much of its financing from the German Government.

As war broke out, Magda had been commissioned in the German Army, and had been assigned to German Intelligence, working, according to her, with the SS. After her surrender, she told Allied Intelligence of an incident that occurred in the fall of 1943.

She spoke of three high level officials that were brought into her father's clinic under conditions of extreme secrecy and security.

She reported that these men choose to have their faces altered to have exaggerated Semitic features...

Magda claims, that unknown to the SS, she and her family had been well aware of who two of these men were. She told Allied Intelligence that one of the men was Adolf Hitler, another was Martin Borman, and they did not know who the third man was.

Magda was well acquainted with Hitler.

She had supervised a program, which altered the appearance of four men to look like Hitler. Some of the work had actually been performed in her family's clinic.Another interesting fact is that two weeks after the three men left the clinic, the SS conducted a raid. During this raid, the entire staff including Magda's father and her brother was brutally killed and the clinic was burned to the ground. All records were burned with the clinic.

In 1981, a retired US Army Colonel named Wendell Stephens made a trip to Ecuador. During his trip, he met a priest in a small town called Cuenca. The priest was named Father Krespi, and Col. Stephens was convinced he was in fact Adolf Hitler.

When Magda met Krespi, she too was sure it was in fact Hitler. He had the same features she had helped her father sketch out all those years ago. And she also was convinced by a specific piece of art that the Father had. She knew it as the same piece of art that had been a favorite of Hitler's. It had hung behind him at his Reich Chancellery Office, there was no mistake


Father Krespi's background is also mysterious, and does in fact go along with Magda's accounts of what happened. Krespi claims he is from an Italian/Austrian family in Northern Italy. He came to the Vatican in fall of 1943. There, he attended seminary and served as a Novitiate. Later, he was ordained into the priesthood.

All this was behind the closed walls of the Vatican. Unheard at the time, and has never been repeated since.

He never set foot outside of Vatican City, a city with the status and diplomatic immunity of a sovereign nation. Krespi was given a position as Curator of Art for the Vatican Achieves, a position far above his humble rank as Novitiate.

Krespi spoke fluent Italian with a perfect accent. Magda later pointed out the fact that Hitler's mother was from Northern Italy and spoke Italian as her first language. Hitler himself learned Italian as his first language.

In 1956, Krespi was sent as a priest to the town of Cuence in Ecuador. A town known to Jewish-led National Socialists Hunters as a hideout of Martin Borman and other high level Officers that had escaped Germany.

There, he lived a reclusive life as village priest and reportedly gave money to every member of his congregation at the conclusion of services. He also reportedly paid the villagers to protect his mission. Villagers say German men often visited him.

In 1993, Father Krespi died, reportedly at the age of 90. More than 2,000 people attended his funeral, which was marked with ceremony rivaling that of a King. He was laid to rest in a white marble sepulcher, which is still reported to be cleaned weekly, and adorned with flowers constantly, all paid for by anonymous admirers.

After his passing, some interesting things were discovered about him. He left behind millions of dollars worth of artwork. Magda and others later identified much of this artwork as belonging to the private collection of Adolf Hitler.

The Chief of Police for the town of Cuence reported that what he termed as "teams of European men" invaded the small town the day prior to the funeral. Several attendees of the funeral were German, and had armed escorts".

A cartoon including the Argentina Theory with the Third Reich UFO Theory

Hitler most likely died in the Bunker in 1945. However, it is impossible to know for sure. There are a few key points to consider:

  • The Soviets were the first to arrive on the scene. Thus the information went from those closest to Hitler [ four Nazis who were utterly devoted to Hitler], to the Soviets, who passed on information to the Allies, who issued headlines to the public.
    It would be naive to believe that the information was not altered by one of these parties before reaching public eyes and ears.
  • At the time of Hitler’s death, media outlets all over the world were printing headlines asking whether or not Hitler really died, including the "New York Times".
  • There was a report in a Swedish newspaper on 26 April 1945 indicating that a double had been put in Hitler’s place in order to “die on the barricades”.
    The paper, citing the "Free German Press Service", said that the man had been trained to talk and act like Hitler in every possible way.
    Hitler was known to have had at least 6 doubles.
  • When Stalin was asked by President Truman whether or not Hitler was dead, he simply replied “No”. Stalin’s top officer, Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov, reported that “We have found no corpse that could be Hitler’s".
  • President Eisenhower “We have been unable to unearth one bit of tangible evidence of Hitler’s death. Many people believe that Hitler escaped from Berlin".
  • No German witnesses ever saw or identified the remains said to be Hitler’s, but this could not be due to a shortage of witnesses.
    This is in sharp contrast to that of Nazi Josef Göbbels, who had 20 Germans line up to identify his body.
  • The body of Josef Göbbels was put on display and photographed from all angles. There was but a single photo taken of Hitler.

Similarly, there were numerous photographs taken of President Kennedy and General Gaddafi. To quench any possibility of survival myths taking place such photographs have to be taken. This was not done in Adolf Hitler’s case.
