There are certain mysteries that still remain unsolved: who was responsible for the assassination of John F. Kennedy or the identity of Saddam Hussein’s hanged body double.
One such mystery revolved around the dictator of Germany, the man who was feared by one and all, the person who brought down the Soviet Union at its knees: Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler’s death took place under mysterious and chaotic circumstances during World War 2.
It is said that the famous German dictator Adolf Hitler committed suicide with his family in the Berlin Bunker during the de-escalation of the World War. Hitler shot himself with his pistol in the right temple and his wife had bitten into a cyanide capsule. The corpses were carried up the stairs and through the bunker’s emergency exit to the garden behind the Reich Chancellery, where they were burned. The charred remains were found by the Soviets.
After that, the bodies were secretly burned by the Soviets and soon it was confirmed that the dental records of the body burned belonged to Adolf Hitler. This is not the only version of Hitler’s death but it is the only version that the world wanted to believe at that time.
Hunger and poverty had established their roots in many countries and it was very difficult for the governments of multiple countries to uplift their economy. Several countries had spent millions of dollars on the military and the national defense of the country to keep them safe from a potential Nazi attack before the death of the dictator.
After the death of Hitler, the war was over and the soldiers were finally ordered to return home. It was indeed very difficult for the people to accept the fact that the person who was ready to kill half of the world’s population committed suicide.
Conspiracy theories often prey on these doubts and so speculation ran wild. The naval army of Nazi Germany mainly consisted of U-boats. The usage of these U-Boats was to transport Nazi loot to Argentina. It is said that in a U-boat with the war loot, Adolf Hitler and his wife were transported to Argentia where they were greeted by the President of Argentina.
Adolf Hitler then began living at a Bavarian-styled mansion at Inalco, a remote and barely accessible spot at the northwest end of Lake Nahuel Huapi, close to the Chilean Border.
Thereafter, Hitler finally died in 1962. It is also claimed that there are many Government documents regarding Hitler’s escape to Argentina and his death. To this day it is one of the most interesting conspiracy theories related to World War 2.
The primary reasons behind these doubts and the absence of a clear picture of Adolf Hitler’s death were often attributed to the cold war between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic and the United States of America. Even before the death of Adolf Hitler and the fall of the Third Reich, it was obvious that one day the Soviet Union would be standing against the United States of America.
Therefore after the death of Hitler, both countries were suspicious of each other and wanted to obtain proper evidence that Adolf Hitler was indeed dead. Did the most feared person on this planet commit suicide in a bunker or did he spent the rest of his life in solitude?
After so many decades, there is not a single answer to these questions, just conspiracy theories backed by different people, organizations, and governments.
