Does SECRET TUNNEL Discovered Under Berlin Prove Hitler SURVIVED WW2 & Fled Germany?
COULD Adolf Hilter have fled the ruins of Berlin to live out his days in South America? The theory is being taken seriously for the first time after the shock discovery of a secret tunnel beneath the German capital.
A major eight-part documentary series draws on newly declassified FBI files and makes startling discoveries which suggest Hitler may not have died in his bunker at the end of the Second World War after all. Instead, the programme ventures, he could actually have been spirited out of Berlin under the noses of the invading Soviets.
Then, having travelled on a U-boat from Spain, he may have spent the rest of his life plotting the rise of the Fourth Reich at a secret compound in the Argentine jungle.
On an exclusive tour last week of the tunnel network Hitler had built under Berlin, the Express found out more about the astounding claims.
And in the process of filming Hunting Hitler, the producers have made a discovery that may change the way in which Hitler’s demise is viewed by historians.
They have found a false wall in a Berlin subway station which could have facilitated the Führer’s escape 70 years ago.
The programmemakers describe the discovery of the wall as their “eureka moment”.
Last year, the FBI declassified 700 confidential documents. These indicate that perhaps the greatestwar criminal in history may not have committed suicide in the “Führerbunker” but instead fled to South America as Nazi Germany collapsed.
A secret memo from FBI director J Edgar Hoover declared that: “American Army officials in Germany have not located Hitler’s body, nor is there any reliable source that will say definitely that Hitler is dead.”

In the aftermath of the war, many experts wondered if the Führer had faked his death and the US Army even mounted a clandestine operation to search for him in Spain.
Armed with cutting-edge technology and these newly released FBI files, Hunting Hitler’s team of renowned investigators approached this like a cold case.
In Berlin last week, the Express met the investigators, including Bob Baer, an ex-CIA veteran, the model for George Clooney’s character in the 2005 film Syriana and one of America’s most elite intelligence officers; Tim Kennedy, a top US special forces operative who was part of the unit tracking Osama Bin Laden after 9/11, and Sascha Keil, a German historian from the Berlin Underworlds Association.
The producers have found out that there was a mass Nazi exodus from Tempelhof Airport on April 21, 1945, the day after the last recorded public sighting of Hitler.
On that date, eight planes were apparently loaded with the Führer’s
