History tells us that Adolf Hitler and his wife Eva Brown committed suicide in the Fuhrerbunker in Berlin in 1945. But across Argentina, in the files of the FBI and in the words of eyewitnesses, a different story appears, a story that will change everything we have ever been taught about Hitler.

    • Synopsis
    • On April 27th, 1945, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun slipped away from the hell of the Führerbunker through a secret tunnel in Hitler’s personal quarters in the devastated Reich Chancellery. Waiting for them was a Ju52 transport aircraft piloted by SS Captain Peter Baumgart of the Luftwaffe Unit KG 200. The group flew to Tonder in Denmark where the party took a second JU52 to Travemunde. Changing planes again, they boarded a long-range JU 252 and flew to the Spanish military base at Reus, 80 km south of Barcelona. General Franco supplied a further aircraft to fly them to Fuerteventura on the Canary Islands, where 24 hours later they boarded U-518 under the command of Oberleutnant zur See Hans Werner Offermann.
      On the instructions of Reichsleiter Bormann, Hitler’s double, Gustav Weber, and the unknown actress who had played his wife for just two days, were executed by SS General Mueller. The bodies were carried out of the bunker and under Russian shellfire were incinerated in the garden. The greatest sleight of hand in History was complete.
      Fifty-three days later on the Argentine coast at Necochea, General Fegelein – who had arrived three days earlier on U-880 - welcomed his Führer to the safety of fascist-dominated Argentina. Hitler would live there for the next 17 years, initially raising his two daughters and planning the re-birth of the worst regime in history. The couple separated in 1953, Eva sick of her lost-life taking the girls to live in the small town of Neuquén. Adolf Hitler finally died on February 13th, 1962 at 3pm, demented, tormented and betrayed by Martin Bormann, attended only by his personal physician Dr. Otto Lehmann, and his faithful aide, former Graf Spee crewman, Heinrich Berthe.
      After many years of research, BBC journalist, writer and director Gerrard Williams, along with Military Historian Simon Dunstan, pieced together the real story of the death of Adolf Hitler. Previously unpublished intensive field research in Argentina, including interviews with many eyewitness to his presence there, new findings that prove the Hitler skull fragments held by the Russians are actually that of a young woman, and previously unpublished scientific evidence proving Hitler had a double being used in public in Berlin, make the story compelling.
