Reports of Adolf Hitler’s demise, in that Berlin bunker back in 1945, may have been greatly exaggerated according to some conspiracy theorists out there.
There’s an entire movement of folk that believe the Nazi leader faked his own death and fled to South America to live out his days in relative peace.
In fact, the notion has been taken so seriously by some, an actual TV show, entitled Hunting Hitler, has been made by the History Channel, with ex-CIA man Bob Baer examining all the evidence supporting this out-there concept.
So what evidence is there to support this outlandish claims? Quite a bit actually. Provided you ignore the account offered up by Hitler’s former bodyguard…

It Took A German Court 11 Years To Declare Hitler Was Dead
