Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his bunker as the Red Army closed in on Berlin on April 30, 1945. But legends about the Nazi dictator's lived on. Was his body ever found? Did he manage to escape?

After Hitler, aides poured gasoline on his body and set it alight in the garden of his chancellery. A few days later, the Soviets discovered the remains. But the body was burned beyond recognition, and they could not be sure it was his. Only after a top-secret investigation could Hitler be positively identified, thanks to information provided by his dentist.

At the same time, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin publicly stated that his army had been unable to find Hitler’s body. Wild rumors swirled about Hitler's death. Stalin even accused some of the Allies of helping him escape. What were the secrets behind this deception? What happened to the two German women who helped identify Hitler's body?

Perhaps you took note of the History Channel series, "Hunting Hitler." It ran for three seasons on that channel, and pursued the line that there were various methods by which Hitler could've exited the Third Reich, how there was infrastructure in place, etc. One of the most interesting aspects was the detailing off safe houses, bunkers and even weapons development in Argentina.

Like most History Channel programming, long on hyperbole and leaps in logic, but entertaining. The Argentina stuff got me to sit up and pay attention. Fascinating.

I missed all that. Although I have watched some History Channel video on Youtube from time to time, I haven't watched TV for nearly 20 years now.

I have read some stories about Hitler "escaping Germany to live out his life in hiding", but the German Documentary above is pretty conclusive, due to the dental assistant's testimony. While a lot of high level NAZIs were helped by the Catholic Church and the good old US (Operation Clipboard was preceded by lots of OSS help BEFORE the war ended) to transplant their Fascist "Business Model" to South America and the USA (SEE: All Honorable Men), Hitler was not one of them. He shot himself in the head after giving orders, which required obtaining and storing a significant amount of difficult to get gasoline at that time, to have his body burned to a crisp. If it wasn't for the teeth, there would have been no way to be sure it was him. I found it interesting that Hitler had such lousy dentition. I know he was a speedball drug user but I had mistakenly assumed his teeth would be pretty good because he was a vegetarian. We live and we learn.

Quote
After decades of silence, 95-year-old Margot Woelk, thought to be the last surviving member of the team tasked with testing Adolf Hitler's food for poisons, has come forward with new details about the infamous figure.

In an interview with the U.K. publication The Times, Woelk described tasting the Fuhrer's meals between 11 a.m. and noon before the dishes were driven to Nazi headquarters, known as the Wolf's Lair. There was always an hour delay between when food was tasted and it was served to Hitler -- time to let the ill effects of any poisons take hold.

“It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with rice and salads. It was all arranged on one plate, just as it was served to him. There was no meat and I do not remember any fish," she told the publication. “Of course I was afraid. If it had been poisoned I would not be here today. We were forced to eat it, we had no choice.”

Woelk's account seems to confirm longstanding suspicions that Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian.


I'm glad I watched this particular Documentary, which I noticed because DW picked April 30, 2020 (75 years after Hitler's Suicide April 30, 1945) to post it on Youtube while I was being edumacated yesterday about virology by some prof from Columbia University.
