    not sure what forum to put this in

    Been watching Hunting Hitler on the history channel and so far they’ve proven that many of his inner circle got away to Argentina following the ‘Ratline’. So, could Hitler have done the same?

    There are theories that the charred body found by the Russians was a lookalike.
    There are also people in Argentina who claim Hitler lived there into old age.

    It’s proven that the Catholic Church baptized the fleeing Nazis and provided them new passports at the Vatican. Disgusting!

    Also theories that cia spirited some Nazis away so that they could get info on the growing threat of communism

    Lots of interesting books and videos on the topic.

    He might have. Would have been disgusting if he did get away.

    It would have been some closure if he was tried in a court along with Goebbels and some others.

    Mossad would've found him. They've found Eichmann and Mengele, surely Hitler would've been much easier to spot — unlike those two he's one of the most recognisable people in history.

    I did some reading into the 'proof' of Hitler's death and I can't say I was 100% convinced. Some dodgy Soviet records, eyewitness statements etc.

    If he had shaved and got a different haircut, he would have been very hard to recognise.

    I believe History Channel did a documentary series about this - which turned out to be a bunch of hokum if I recall correctly.

    There’s zero indication he didn’t die, or even wanted to get away.

    Based on more facts than the assumption that he got away though.

    We're as certain as we can be without actual video evidence or grave. Meaning we're pretty certain. Any claims to the otherwise have never presented any convincing evidence beyond "well it could have happened". People claim to have seen him in Argentina, but if he was so bad at hiding that people could still look at him and go "yeah, that's Hitler", Mossad (or someone else) would have tracked him down. You could argue that he would have been hiding, but then that doesn't fit into the "people recognized him" story, at which point we're back at baseless speculation.

    And if the CIA wanted information on the communists, why would they want Hitler? He wasn't a reliable source at all.

    I think it was proven pretty conclusively that he was in very bad health at that point and certainly would not have lived till a grand old age.

    They found Mengele once, but never caught him. They got Klaus Barbie.

    Reading Mengele's diaries, it's interesting that Simon Wiesenthal used to bullshit his head off about being close to catching a biggie when he was running out of money.

    Even Goering, the highest ranked one they caught, cheated the noose.

    Never said that they caught him, but they've found him. Getting him was tough, obviously, and they've prioritised Eichmann, but it's another matter.

    The only chance Hitler had was to become one's own professional impersonator — hide in plain sight...

    Agreed Eichmann was the bigger and they daren't risk smuggling two out.

    :lol:That would've been a ballsy move by Hitler.

    This is exactly how Nazi Germany ended

    Considering the rumours about Hitler staying on Merseyside, it's no surprise to find lengthy discussion of this topic at The Liverpool Way forum:
    http://www.liverpoolway.co.uk/index.php?/topic/108863-did-hitler-escape/

    More discussion here:
    http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/hunting-hitler.62273/

    I think he killed himself in the bunker, but...

    1. The established story (Hitler's suicide and the whole 'last days in the bunker' narrative) is very convincing...so neat that, ironically, it reads like fiction.

    2. It's troubling that ace pilot Hanna Reitsch flew in, spoke to Hitler, then flew out again. There was no need for Reitsch & her commanding officer to perform his desperately dangerous venture...so why did they?

    Have you got any good, credible sources for this? I've never heard about it before and would definitely be interested in reading up about it if you did.

    Assuming he didn't get away and we have the most boring outcome and they did find his remains, where are they today? I've read the official version but you could never realistically buy that.

    The Argentina thing is also interesting. I've seen picture of a village there and it's just weird how a very German location exists there like that.

    Watch the hunting Hitler (season 3) on the history channel. That’s where I first saw it. Then I googled it and there’s tons of articles as it seems it’s been known for a while

    Similar to the question of Romanov survivors, the Hitler mystery is unlikely to be solved because of the ingrained Bolshevik habit of deception even without necessary reason.

    My thoughts too. Firstly, he was in very poor health, addicted to the potent medicines his doctor was prescribing him. Secondly, he will have been a broken man. His army and ideology defeated.

    I don’t really care if he did get away, personally. I think the generally accepted story of his death was too quick for him and had him in control of his fate.

    I prefer the idea that he might have lived out his final years miserable and in sick health.

    don't really care tbh.
    I think his death was too easy.
    And if he indeed did flee, I doubt he was ever able to see his face in the mirror.

    You really need to be sceptical when watching History Channel documentaries, geebs. They are not very academically rigorous.

    I avidly watch Hunting Hitler (all 3 seasons) Unless its all hoopla, which has been conjured up in the name of entertainment then it seems there is every chance that he got away.

    Seems like Martin Bormann got away too.

    Had a read up on this, and they didn't actually find Mengele did they? They found where he'd been, but never got too close to capturing him, and he died of unrelated natural causes as an old man unfortunately. Evading justice.

    Maybe I'm wrong, I seem to remember that they've found both Eichmann and Mengele but had only enough influence and personnel in the country to capture one of them — and they prioritised Eichmann. Again, that's what I remember, so it may not be the case.

    I'd imagine the ultimate boogeyman would've been found long before now.

    Somebody would've said something.

    We like to believe in conspiracies and like to join dots that aren't actually there. He died in the bunker and that's it.

    So the matching testimonies of 40+ people are all made up? And Bohrmann knew of DNA analysis 50 years beforehand and planted a fake body containing his DNA in a Berlin subway? Don’t be fecking retarded.

    There was a testemony from Hilter Youth leader saying Bormann died from shelling in Berlin but at Nurnenburg trials they tried him in absentia. And his bones turned 30 odd years later they found clay consistent with South America. And then there is the woman in who claims she was adopted by Bormann so he couldn't be extradited.

    This is part of my point though chief. They have insane conspiracy shows about escaped Nazis and aliens and all of these outlandish crackpot theories, and yet not a single documentary about lizard people. Why? Because each of their shows is merely a code for our lizard overlords. Hidden in plain sight. Want proof? It’s simple; Illuminati - more like HILLuminati. What can lizards climb up? Hills. Boom. Lizard people.
