Classified FBI files claim Adolf Hitler escaped by submarine to Argentina
An amazing cache of files shows that J Edgar Hoover's FBI took claims of Hitler's survival seriously and a team was assigned to exploring scores of tip offs.
The astonishing documents detail how an Argentinean fugitive claimed he helped Hitler, two women and other Germans disembark from a submarine in the South American country approximately two and half weeks after the fall of Berlin in April 1945, the Daily Express reported.
Hitler and his companions then went by horse pack to the foothills of the southern Andes, and the plan was for the 50-strong group to move in with German families in villages in the area.
The unnamed Argentinian informant, who gave the information over to the US authorities hoping to get asylum in return, gives a description of Hitler to a journalist for the Los Angeles Examiner on July 29 1945, saying the Nazi "is suffering from asthma and ulcers, has shaved off his moustache and has a long 'but' on his upper lip".
Other tip-offs to the FBI suggested Hitler was actually living in New York City, again without his moustache, while some suggested he was hiding with Nazi sympathisers in the German speaking part of Switzerland.
The revelations come just weeks after a Nazi-hunting author claimed he had found a picture of Hitler which proved he died in Brazil aged 95.

A well written and very well researched article was written about this subject in a magazine titled Uncensored ( published from New Zealand.) There are photographs that have been included in the article - I would highly recommend reading the article - makes sense and it is highly credible.
As one thought - the public were only ever shown one black and white photograph that the captions told us was a dead Hitler. I no longer believe that photograph was actually what it stated to be.
Much Peace - Amanda

If this "news" is "via: in.news.yahoo.com" why does the link take you to some 100th rate tabloid site? ... Garbage, anyone can scrap together a fake FBI paper...
