Did Hitler escape Germany at the end of WWII?

British historian Gerrard Williams maintains that Hitler did not perish in his bunker after all.
As the Soviets descended on Berlin during the final days of the Nazi regime, Hitler and his wife Eva Braun were believed to have committed suicide to prevent themselves being captured.

Whether this actually happened however has always generated a measure of controversy, not least because their bodies were burned and eyewitness accounts of their demise remain questionable.

Now however Gerard Williams, a noted historian who has long been researching what happened to the Nazi leader, has come forward to claim that Hitler had actually managed to escape Germany at the end of World War II and that body doubles of he and his wife had been killed in their place.
"I believe that in April 1945 the real Hitler along with Eva Braun were spirited out of the bunker where they escaped," he said. "They did not die, we were lied to, we're still being lied to."

"I am pretty convinced two people probably did die in the bunker at the end of April 1945 but they weren't Hitler and Eva Braun. Two doubles replaced them and it was those who were murdered and their bodies disposed of later."

Williams also maintains that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had never been convinced that Hitler had died either and spent years searching for him all over the world.

"If you tell a lie often enough and loudly enough it becomes the truth, and in this case what the world accepted as the truth is this lie," he said.

Oh course he survived it. I am beginning to think that the Nazis won the war. At least in western civilization. Look at what is happening in our own USA government. Very Nazi-like. I attended a graduation ceremony this year where two exceptional student awards were being handed out. The principal used words and phrases like "model for all students and citizens", "personal characteristics that all should aspire towards". I leaned over to my spouse and said "that is so Nazi-like". Then I watched the two students, a boy and a girl, cross the stage. BOTH BLONDE!!! I got up and walked out. My wife ... [More]

Then committed suicide. Actually, you're partially right. He felt his generals let him down, not necessarily the German people. And are you saying he ordered the Soviets to invade Berlin? Ealdwita snippet alert....... On March 19th.1945, Adolf Hitler issued the Befehl betreffend Zerstörungsmaßnahmen im Reichsgebiet... (Demolitions on Reich Territory Decree)...later to be known as the 'Nero Decree' which he ordered his Minister of Armaments and War Production , Albert Speer to carry out the destruction of German infrastructure to prevent their use by Allied forces as they penetrated dee...

early 70s in Argentina apparently the black girlfriend was used as a cover up,so that people would not think it was hitler Your informations are incorrect. It has been proven that the lady next to AH is Eva Braun right after her skin darkening treatment in July 1971.

The "Hitler went to South America" theory is disinformation used to assist the CIA and other USA organizations in their social agendas to merge dark haired Germans with the Spanish in a global racial manipulation scheme.

FBI thought he fled to Argentina according to the FBI archives. unless somebody is pulling a hoax on the FBI web site...

The FBI speculated and opened investigative files on many things, that was their job. There's still no "proof in the pudding" though. Edit: Unless, of course, you're into the nonsensical "connect the dots" rationale. If that's the case, "Full steam ahead, damn the torpedoes!". Business as usual.

Why do you think that? ETA: think about it--if Hitler escaped, he'd automatically be the most wanted fugitive in the world. He'd have to find some surgeon to give him plastic surgery, since there's no way he'd disguise himself by shaving his moustache like in the picture upthread. If I were in that position, and planned to escape, for one thing, I'd have a plan. No plan for Hitler's escape has ever come to light. Second, there's no way someone could pull that off alone. He'd have to have help. No one has ever come forward and said, "I helped Hitler escape and hide in the South American jungle.... [More]

As Spain was national socialist under Franco until 1978 what makes you think he would need plastic surgery? And if Spain said on your bike Argentina liked Hitler too. First a few corrections: - Spain was fascist, not national socialist. They are not the same thing. - Franco died in 1975, not 1978. (I lived in Spain at the time) By all accounts Hitler and Franco had a very bad relationship with each other and there is no reason why Franco should risk harboring Hitler. What could he gain by protecting the most hated man in the world ? What could any nation hope to achieve by protecting Hitler ? ... [More]

After reading where he "might of gone" (had he survived), the underground base in Antartica or the far side of the Moon starts to make more sense.
