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.

... the Black Cat wouldn’t be so lucky.

The Last Bomber Shot Down Over Germany - Stopping Hitler's Secret Last Stand in the Alps


Dark Skies 348K subscribers

A Consolidated B-24 Liberator known as Black Cat was the last American bomber to be shot down over Germany during World War 2.

On the morning of April 21, 1945, days before the end of the war, the 466th Bombardment Group sent 137 B-24s to a mission in Salzburg, Austria. The operation should have been canceled before takeoff because of poor weather conditions, but the group still left the base in Norfolk, England, to carry out their 230th mission.

The squadron soon realized the endeavor was impossible, and the pilots were forced to return. However, as they flew over the heavily-defended city of Regensburg, they encountered heavy resistance.

The Liberators would give it their all against a desperate enemy ready to put up a frenzied and hopeless charge that missed most of its targets.

But the Black Cat wouldn’t be so lucky.

War Factories | Part 6 | Occupied Territories

When the Nazis take France, they are desperate to use the giant Peugeot factories to build up their war machine. France has some of the best industries in all of Europe. Its car manufacturers – Peugeot, Citroen, Renault – have gone further than any other European company in the race to achieve mass production. The France that the Nazis occupy is rich with gold, infrastructure and talent. The Nazis waste no time in looting it, and trying to forcibly attach these assets to its cause. 

Soon the massive Peugeot factories in Sochaux are converted to build tank turrets, parts for fighter planes and other military vehicles. But Peugeot boss and owner Rodolphe Peugeot is secretly a passionate anti-Nazi. He gives money to the British special agent Harry Ree to begin operations against his own factories. The Nazis rely on Peugeot for key components, but Peugeot bosses and workers are cooperating closely with the Resistance.

Of 100,000 cylinder heads ordered by the Nazis in 1941, Peugeot delivered just 1000 by 1944. The Nazis complain that sixty percent of Peugeot vehicles are crashing or breaking down because of faulty clutches. Peugeot warehouses, filled with tyres, are destroyed by the Resistance with the cooperation of Peugeot bosses. All in all Peugeot management are complicit in eighteen major sabotage operations, which put Peugeot plants completely out of action for several months.

The sabotaging efforts of Peugeot were repeated at Citroen and also in other parts of the German occupied territories, such as Skoda in Czechoslovakia. These are stories of cunning and daring.  Consequences for discovery of such sabotage were fatal. But attacking the production capacity of the Nazis was a hugely important part of the Axis demise.

Agelbert COMMENT: "Termites are able organizers, and thoroughly attached to their way of life." -- James Stewart Martin ✨👍

"The trouble with a parasite is that it eventually kills its host". 👍 This is certainly TRUE in regard to the modus operandi of NAZI (i.e. Fascist) Germany.

"National Socialists (i.e. NAZIs) distrusted Capitalism." 🙄 This is a FALSE statement about NAZI ideology. It is, in fact, cleverly formulated Orwellian Propaganda (i.e. a disingenuous backdoor defense of Capitalism's morally bankrupt Social Darwinist ideology), as the book, "ALL HONORABLE MEN", COPYRIGHT 1950, by James Stewart Martin, makes irrefutably clear.

"In this book I have tried to tell the story of an important problem and some of the things that happened when we tried to deal with it. Though many of the events occurred in Germany, before and during the military occupation, they seemed in an increasing degree to be echoes of something more fundamental that was happening back in the United States. For whatever reason, the larger pattern is a repetition of what followed after World War I; but the pace has been quicker, as though greater powers were moving more rapidly toward a more catastrophic result."  -- James Stewart Martin

As this book explains, FASCIST EFFORTS to achieve WORLDWIDE MONOPOLY CARTELIZATION, interrupted by WWII, CONTINUED after WWII by those who aided the rise of Hitler. Shortly before WWII ended, these fascists moved HUGE FORTUNES OUT of Germany to various places on the planet, INCLUDING the United States, for the express purpose of RESURRECTING the FASCIST 'BUSINESS MODEL' wherever they could.

These industrialists are true believers in using the local government to do whatever on their behalf, going back generations BEFORE the word "Fascism" ever existed. This book brings you up to 1950. As bad as the fascist infiltration of the United States and Europe was by 1950, it got much worse after that.

It is a cruel joke, pushed 😈 repeatedly by this War Factories Documentary Series, that the ideology of Capitalism actually favors and promotes a free market economy. The reverse is the bitter truth. Capitalists do all they can to eliminate competition in order to achieve monopoly control of a given product and the price they charge for it. Their happy talk about "free markets" and "promoting competition" is Orwellian Propaganda formulated to sucker we-the-people into willingly accepting being exploited 24/7 for the profits of those at the top of the Social Darwinist = Capitalist heap. 💰😈🎩🍌

Wikipedia:  👉 The adjective "Orwellian" connotes an attitude and a policy of CONTROL by PROPAGANDA, surveillance, MISINFORMATION, denial of truth and MANIPULATION OF THE PAST.
