CIA informant claimed Hitler survived WWII

Declassified CIA documents have indicated that Hitler may not have committed suicide in his bunker.
In 1955, the CIA's Western Hemisphere Division chief was allegedly sent a secret memo from the acting station chief in Venezuela who had received word from one of his informants that Hitler had actually survived the war and was now living a secluded existence in Argentina.

The informant was none other than former SS trooper Phillip Citroen, who claimed to have been in regular contact with Hitler, who was going by the name Adolph Schuttlemayer, on a monthly basis.

The document concluded by stating that none of those involved were in a position to provide an intelligence evaluation on the matter and that it was being forwarded as of "possible interest".

Even more intriguing was the discovery by the WHD chief of a similar report filed a year earlier claiming that, not only Hitler, but a whole group of Nazis had been living in South America.

"Phillip Citroen told a former member of this base that while he was working for a railroad company in Colombia, he met an individual who strongly resembled and claimed to be Hitler," the memo reads.

"Citroen claimed to have met the indivdual at a place called 'Residencias Coloniales' in Tunja, Colombia, which is, according to the source, overly populated with former Nazis."

Hitler had allegedly left Columbia for Argentina in January 1955 and Citroen had also mistakenly suggested to the station chief that, as ten years had passed, he could no longer be prosecuted.

The matter however was ultimately dropped and nothing else ever came of it.

The declassified document, along with an alleged snap of Hitler, can be viewed - here.

I don't quite follow the argument that because the survivors in the bunker told similar stories, they must therefore have been telling the truth.  These, after all, were Hitler's most loyal and devoted followers, the people who had remained with him even after many top Nazis were deserting him. If they were privy to his escape plan, of course they would tell the same story! I just got a most interesting biography of Hugh Trevor-Roper, An Honourable Englishman by Adam Sisman, and the picture it gives of Trevor-Roper's investigation is actually quite disturbing.  Like most I assumed that after t...

Wasn't it schicklgruber...

Ehh... ? Schicklgruber was the birthname of Hitler's father Alois. It came form his mother Maria (Adolf's grandmother). His stepfather's name was Johann Georg Hiedler and he later took his name. Why it became Hitler instead of Hiedler is not clear. I suppose it had something to do with Alois being illegitimate.  The identity of Alois father is unknown, but is generally assumed to be either his stepfather or his stepfathers brother Johann Nepomuk Hiedler. Before anyone starts a new conspiracy about this, no they were not jewish ! So if Hitlers father had not changed his name it would have been ... [More]

They used to tease Hitler for his fathers birth name Schicklgruber when he was a child.

That would probably explain why he changed it. By all accounts Alois was a very bad father to little Adolf and having experienced a tough childhood himself might help explain why he was like that. It turns out that a lot of dictators have one thing in common: Lousy fathers.

I cant remember exactly where i read this about hitler being teased for his fathers surname i think it was in the book the rise and fall of the third reich or in one of my historical mags. I belive Hitler was born mad and that his hard up bringing made things worse plus his war experiences. Its scary that the nazi parties is marching again in europe. one of Swedens top political party the Swedish Democrats was founded by two former Swedish SS officers Hmm.. I wonder what their political agenda is.... ;-)

I don't we will ever know exactly why Hitler became as he was, but I think it was a mixture of reasons. His childhood, daddy issues, losing his mother, his failure as an artist, wartime experience, the general instability after World war one, his xenofobia, his anti semitism, his drug use and so on. It was all a coctail that was bound to create something bad. It's going to be interesting to see what happens in your up comming election. Best of luck with that !

Or likely all the same reasons why racists are racist. But he wasn't the only one that wanted to be rid of Jews along with the clearly enthusiastic German nation. But it's clearly written in both his book where he holds the loss of WW1 responsibility to the Jews and psychological literature that a lot of his personal distaste for Jews was that his beloved mother was under the care of a Jewish doctor and his idea for the holocaust appeared to spawn from a political Palensteinian leader where before Hilter was content to just expel the Jews but received advice from this leader to "burn them".
