More On Hitler In Argentina

Further research on Argentina—the final place of Hitler's death:

BUENOS AIRES (EFE news agency) -- Adolf Hitler lived in Patagonia after fleeing Germany in 1945, claims Argentinean journalist Abel Basti in a tour-guide style book which discloses the locations in the Andean foothills which served as a refuge for several former Nazi leaders. Hitler and his lover Eva Braun did not commit suicide--rather, they fled to Argentinean shores aboard a submarine and lived for many years in the vicinity of San Carlos de Bariloche, a tourist site and ski haven some 1350 km southwest of Buenos Aires, according to the journalist.
San Carlos de Bariloche, usually known as Bariloche, is a city in the province of Río NegroArgentina, situated in the foothills of the Andes on the southern shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake and is surrounded by the Nahuel Huapi National Park. After an extensive public works and architectural buildup the city emerged in the 1930s and 1940s as a major tourism centre with ski, trekking and mountaineering facilities apart from numerous restaurants, cafés and chocolate shops. The city has a permanent population of 108,205 according to the 2010 census.

Under fire because of a new book that documents for the first time how Juan Peron clandestinely maneuvered to bring Nazi and other war criminals to Argentina after World War II, the Peronist government here is resisting calls to release long-secret official records about the collaboration. According to the Simon Wiesenthal Center here, both the Foreign Relations Ministry and the Interior Ministries have failed to respond to letters, sent to them shortly after the book was published here late last year, asking that the records be made public. In addition, seven members of Congress have now called for an investigation into how crucial immigration records were apparently destroyed six years ago in defiance of existing laws.
Nazis & Argentina: a History Lesson:
Any expat living in Buenos Aires will be aware of Argentina’s open door policy towards immigration. After all, lots of us just hop over to Uruguay every three months to perpetually renew our tourist visas. Technically it’s illegal to spend more than six months per year here on a tourist visa, but no-one seems to mind. In fact, Argentina has had an open door policy on immigration for the last 200 years, including a long period where immigration (specifically from European countries) was actively encouraged. And how’s this for a factoid: between 1821 and 1932, Argentina was #2 in the world in the number of immigrants that it admitted, a staggering 6,405,000 people. (Wondering which country was #1 in the world during this period? It was of course the United States of America, admitting approximately five times as many immigrants as Argentina!) . . .  
Investigators believe that following the war, a cabal of ex-Nazis and Nazi collaborators formed in Argentina and worked with the Perón government (he became president in 1946) to organize the emigration of hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of their kind to Argentina. Members of the group frequently travelled to Europe to look for and bring back more of the fugitives. 
It’s not known exactly how many ex-Nazis were brought to Argentina during the late 1940s and early 1950s. One researcher identified 300, but there easily could have been more. What is known is that they included Josef Mengele, Adolf Eichmann and his adjutant Franz Stangl, Erich Priebke (a former Captain in the Waffen SS), Klaus Barbie – also known as ‘the Butcher of Lyon’ (a former Captain in the SS and a member of the Gestapo), Ustasha Dinko Šakić (former commandant of the concentration camp that was nicknamed ‘the Auschwitz of the Balkans’) and many, many others. 
The ex-Nazis were given landing permits and visas and it has also been claimed that many of them were even given jobs in Perón’s government.
Nazi Past Haunts Fallen Argentine Hotel - ABC News:
By Simon Gardner - La Falda, Argentina, Nov. 18, 2011 
It was supposed to be a paradise on Earth, a luxury spa deep in the New World. But this fallen Eden is now in ruins — haunted by its past as an Argentine haven for Nazis and their supporters. The Eden Hotel, famous before the end of World War II as a posh resort for Germans in central Argentina, is now an empty shell managed by the local municipality, which offers tours and is trying to restore it as a museum.

Hitler Died in Argentina, Not Berlin - True or False?

Did Adolf Hitler really die in Argentina? British journalist Gerrard Williams insists he did.

New book claims Adolf Hitler died in Argentina, not Berlin | Herald Sun:
A NEW book claims that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not kill himself in Berlin in 1945, but actually ended his days in Argentina. British journalist Gerrard Williams told Sky News today he and co-author Simon Dunstan found an "overwhelming amount of evidence" to suggest Hitler died an old man in South America. Most historians say the Nazi leader died in his Berlin bunker in 1945, but Williams claims their research, looking at newly declassified documents and forensic tests, challenges this.

The deal was done with Americans in 1945! No holocaust denial in this. No proof his body was found at the bunker.

@summer20105707 ah ok, well until there is evidence that hitler's skull or remins or whatever dna is found in the bunker, we can't just assume he committed suicide. It could be possible, but then that means that everything else is possible, I'm just dissapointed that when history is taught to kids they are told that he committed suicide, that's not how history should be taught. Same goes for Osama bin Laden, no photo, no DNA evidence released, just the governments word, sorry no dice.
urrejhipokritet 3 months ago 10 There were several Hitler sightings in Argentina, and most of them were reported to the FBI. But contrary to what people would might believe, the FBI had an agreement with Hitler and the rest of the surviving Nazi-top. If Nazi Germany would hand over all its technologies, scientific discoveries and scientists from their A-bomb research to the US and NOT the russians, they would let them go free... And so they did!

Others insist the claims are all rubbish. 

Adolf Hitler faked his own suicide and fled to Argentina where he lived until a ripe old age, according to extraordinary new claims. Authors of the new book ‘Grey Wolf: The Escape Of Adolf Hitler’ believe evidence of the tyrant’s suicide is flawed – and that he actually escaped in 1945 to begin a new life with his wife, Eva Braun. But the claims have been ridiculed by leading historian Guy Walters who today branded them ‘2,000 per cent rubbish.’
Rochus Misch, 94, Hitler’s former radio operator and the last survivor of the Berlin bunker, says he saw the bodies of ‘the boss’ and Eva Braun with his own eyes.
He said: ‘I was in the room next door when he shot himself. I did not hear the shot but I saw his uncovered corpse when the door was opened.
'I saw Hitler slumped with his head on the table.
'I saw Eva Braun sitting dead in the corner of the sofa, her head turned to Hitler, her knees pulled up to her chest. She had a dark blue dress on and a white frill on her collar.’ 
Historians hold him up as a reliable source and he is the author of a book, published several years ago, called The Last Witness.

It's very UN-believable. Williams has been boo'd off a number of historical discussion forums when his advertising descended into him insulting other posters and their opinions rather than answering questions put to him. Being a journalist, he doesn't seem to accept that "we believe..." is not an acepted academic level of proof on something as big as this claim.
The book is full of padding, there's at least five chapters of general WWII history before the main subject matter appears!

Yoga And The Nazi SS

There was always a deep interest in ancient India among Nazi leaders. Now a new study by Matthias Teitke (Yoga in National Socialism) shows that the SS encouraged officers and death camp guards to practice yoga to enrich their minds, bodies and spirits.
How SS recommended yoga to death camp guards as a good way to de-stress | Mail Online
The Nazi interest in yoga lay in its roots in the 19th century when India mysticism was a favourite pursuit of the middle and upper classes and a great influence on romantic poets and philosophers.
During the Wiemar Republic, as the Nazis gained strength, yoga enjoyed a boom among a people weary of war, inflation, unemployment and misery. More than 50 yoga books were published in the 1920's in Berlin alone. And, as the Nazis corrupted most things they touched, so it was with yoga.  
It was seized on by race experts in the party as being the pursuit of 'Ayran' people. Jakob Wilhelm Hauer, an S.S. captain and yoga expert, who influenced his chief Himmler and convinced him that 'yoga can internally arm us and prepare us for the forthcoming battles.'

10-yr-old Son Murders Neo-Nazi Leader/Father

If you push beneath the surface into the lives of the historical Nazis, you find the same kind of things. There are always many dynamics, both personal and familial. 

By Overtime Staff Topics Correspondent Candids

"60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl and photojournalist Julie Platner both approached the story of neo-Nazi Jeff Hall with an open, but wary, mind. 
Julie had become interested in racist extremist organizations when she covered the last presidential election, and she wanted to explore life within the movement. Jeff Hall, a leader in the so-called National Socialist Movement (NSM) in California, invited her in.

Meanwhile, Lesley and producer Shachar Bar-On were looking at a more specific angle: the murder of a neo-Nazi leader by his 10-year-old son. They wanted to know what role, if any, the racist ideology played in this terrible crime.
