A new book claims that Adolf Hitler didn't really commit suicide in his bunker as Germany faced defeat in the final days of the Second World War.
According to Hitler in Brazil - His Life and His Death, der Führer actually died in 1984 in the small Brazilian town of Nossa Senhora do Livramento, where he hung out with a hot black chick up until the ripe old age of 95.
Author Simoni Renee Guerreiro Dias claims that Hitler took the name Adolf Leipzig (crafty!), but was known to villagers as "Old German". The dodgy tale also involves buried Jesuit treasure and, naturally, the Vatican. Dias also says that Hitler shacked up with a lady named Cutinga.
Besides NASA, it seems that South America really was the destination of choice for most high-ranking Nazis.
Adolph Eichmann was captured in Buenos Aires in 1960, while Vancouver jewel thief Robert Wilson published an account of his time in Bolivia with the Butcher of Lyon in 1985's The Confessions of Klaus Barbie.
Simon Wiesenthal was among those who believed that Josef Mengele resurfaced at one point in the isolated and highly secure German commune known as Colonia Dignidad, in Chile.
Led by Luftwaffe corporal and convicted pedophile Paul Schäfer, Colonia Dignidad eagerly assisted the Pinochet regime in the torture and disappearance of Chilean citizens.
Whether Herr Leipzig really was der Führer—I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the old photo offered as evidence above is a little inconclusive—Dias or possibly her gimmick-happy publisher is prepared to go the limit. Leipzig's remains are set to be exhumed and Old German's DNA tested against a descendant of Hitler living in Israel.
