What Really Happened to Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun?

Book Claims the Couple Lived The Good Life in Argentina

What Really Happened to Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun?
According to the authors of a new book, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun did not commit suicide in his Berlin bunker on April 30, 1945, but, rather, the couple faked their deaths before fleeing to a Nazi-controlled enclave in Fascist Argentina.

The commonly held belief is that at the end of World War II, Hitler shot himself while Braun swallowed cyanide, a belief blatantly opposed by the book’s authors.

‘There is no forensic evidence for his, or Eva Braun’s deaths, and the stories from the eyewitnesses to their continued survival in Argentina are compelling,’ explains Gerrard Williams, the British author who, along with Simon Dunstan, wrote the new book, ‘Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf.’

‘We didn’t want to re-write history, but the evidence we’ve discovered about the escape of Adolf Hitler is just too overwhelming to ignore,” Williams, a historian and journalist, told Sky News.

The authors also state the pair had two daughters before Hitler died in 1962 at the age of 73.

The book also states that skull fragments thought to be Hitler’s are actually that of a young woman under the age of 40. Hitler was 56 when he died.

And, despite the authors’ claims being ridiculed by some, including leading historian Guy Walters who called their claims ‘2,000 per cent rubbish,’ the authors stand by their research which includes their theory that Americans intelligence officials helped with Hitler’s and Braun’s escape, in exchange for war technology created by the Nazis.

Williams claims that he an his co-author did their due diligence and research in Argentina, interviewing eyewitnesses who could speak directly to Hitler’s presence there.

“It’s only now that Argentina is once more a thriving democracy that the real stories are beginning to come out,” said Williams. “Even so, two of our eyewitnesses received death threats from persons unknown while working with us on this book.”

Meanwhile, Walters, who has studied Nazi Germany extensively, called the concept of Hitler living in South America until the 1960s as the ‘worst sort of junk history’ that relied on ‘dubious secondary sources.’

'The two authors should be ashamed of themselves for peddling this kind of utter nonsense,” insisted Walters. “It's simply unbelievable that publishers would give them the time of day. It's an absolute disgrace. There's no substance to it at all. It appeals to the deluded fantasies of conspiracy theorists and has no place whatsoever in historical research. There have been thousands of theories over the years that Hitler might have escaped but they are nothing more than parlor games. The evidence that Hitler was killed in simply overwhelming. For these authors to claim otherwise is simply staggering.”

One man who agrees with Walters’ claims is Rochus Misch, 94, Hitler’s former radio operator and the last survivor of the Berlin bunker, who says he saw the bodies Hitler and Braun with his own eyes.

‘I was in the room next door when he shot himself,” said Misch. “ 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.’

Misch, who historians have referred to as “credible”, is the author of a book called The Last Witness.

A film version of Grey Wolf is scheduled to be released early next year.
