You can read here an overview of another book that claims Hitler did not die in Berlin but escaped to Argentina. I said in my previous post on the subject that I have my own reasons — founded on my own close study of Hitler’s history and psychology — for not believing that.
I am beginning to wonder however — not because of the new book but because of the response to it. The critics of the book say that it is a “consensus” of the experts that Hitler died in Berlin and the publisher should be ashamed for publishing such a book. That is so close to what defenders of the global warming hoax say that my skeptical antennae begin to twitch.
Moreover they admit that the alleged fragment of Hitler’s skull held by the Russians is not in fact Hitler’s and that there was a great deal of confusion in Hitler’s bunkler at the time of the Russian surge into Berlin.
The only “proof” they offer that Hitler died in his Berlin bunker is the testimony from one of Hitler’s closest aides who says that he saw Hitler dead there. The possibility that one of Hitler’s aides might have lied to protect his boss has apparently not occurred to them.
I think I will now have to say that I am agnostic on the matter.
