The traditional narrative of the death of Adolf Hitler, which we have been made to believe, is that on April 30, 1945, when the Allied Forces finally entered Germany, he shot himself in the head.
His newlywed wife, Eva Braun was also said to have ingested cyanide in a subterranean bunker. Upon discovering them dead, the soldiers reportedly burned their bodies and the pair was subsequently buried in a shallow grave, nearby. This is the traditional narrative of how Hitler and his wife ended their lives on Earth.
However, for sometimes now, Hitler’s death has been keenly contested by some conspiracy theorists. The theorists believe that Hitler never killed himself – as was reported by the Allied Forces – but rather, was helped to escape. Some people have doubted this claim, saying it is a mere speculative hypothesis being ‘cooked’ to deceive people.
This has inspired biographers, researchers, scientists, historians and others to conduct in-depth studies on whether Hitler, indeed, killed himself or escaped.
We can report that after going through some of these studies, there is a big question on the traditional narrative of how Hitler died. The researchers have admitted that there is no evidence whatsoever, to suggest that Hitler shot himself or even died in Germany. This has become the discussion among mainstream researchers, who have spent years researching the issue.
First, there is an account narrated by Argentinean historian, Abel Basti. Basti has extensively detailed how Hitler arrived in Argentina in a new edition of his book titled, “El Exilio de Hitler” (Hitler in Exile). The book is now making headlines in South America. The Huffington Post has also discussed the contents of the book.
Basti revealed that Hitler slipped from Germany to safety, via a tunnel beneath the Chancellery connected to Tempelhof Airport, where a waiting helicopter took him to Spain. He then traveled first to the Canary Islands, and later made his way to Argentina in a U-boat. He lived in Argentina for ten years before settling in Paraguay under the protection of dictator Alfredo Stroessner, who had German roots. Basti believed Hitler died on February 3, 1971.
In the book, Basti wrote:
“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. This also applies to many scientists, the military and spies who later took part in the struggle against the Soviet regime. Wealthy families who helped him over the years were responsible for the organization of his funeral. 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.”
Observers who have read Basti’s account, have substantiated it. They make reference to how the United States Office of Strategic Services conducted Operation Paperclip, in which more than 1,500 Nazi scientists, engineers and technicians were brought covertly to the country in order to tap into their knowledge. The simple logic here is that if the United States can help these criminals, why can’t they help Hitler?
Again, a CIA officer named Bob Baer, who has a considerable experience in the spy business, described a similarly covert government-facilitated escape plan in a documentary series for the History Channel. Hunting Hitler was aired in early 2015. Baer and his team, including war crimes investigator, Dr John Cencich, claimed they discovered proof of Hitler’s escape, using 700 pages of declassified FBI documents and on-scene sleuthing in South America.
One investigator confirmed that “American Army officials in Germany have not located Hitler’s body nor is there any reliable source that Hitler is dead.”
Another report, discrediting the traditional narrative and backing up the accounts of Basti and the Baer team, was published in the Guardian in 2009. In the report, American researchers performed a DNA analysis of a skull fragment preserved in secret by Soviet Intelligence, to determine the legitimacy of the claim that it is Hitler’s bone. The Soviets believed it was the skull fragment of Hitler.
However, at the genetics lab of the University of Connecticut, archeologist and bone specialist Nick Bellantoni made a startling discovery. Bellantoni said that “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.” For the record, Hitler turned 56 in April, 1945.
Bellantoni’s suspicions from physical examination of that skull fragment, which the team diligently confirmed authentic, were backed up by the molecular-genetic analysis. In fact, it became clear that the bone that the Soviets thought was Hitler, was an unidentified female.
