Adolf Hitler did not commit suicide in 1945, but managed to escape Germany and flee to Argentina by submarine, says Jerome Corsi, author of the new book "Hunting Hitler."
Corsi, a senior staff reporter for World Net Daily, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that a theory that the leader of the Third Reich may not have perished at the end of World War II first took hold in 2009.
"The chief archaeologist in Connecticut was allowed by Moscow to examine the Hitler skull that the Russians had had in its archives since the end of World War II," Corsi said Monday.
"The scientists found [through] . . . DNA testing that it was really the skull of a 40-year-old woman, clearly not Hitler's skull.
"[And it was] not the skull of [Hitler's longtime mistress] Eva von Braun, who [according to] the traditional story, committed suicide with Hitler."
Corsi launched his own investigation, tracking down documents that pointed to the U.S. government, the OSS, and the CIA fabricating Hitler's suicide and then helping him escape.
"I found . . . memos from J. Edgar Hoover right after the war that said exactly how Hitler got away," he said.
"These two industrialists, a husband and wife who financed Hitler in the '20s and then emigrated in the '30s to Argentina, had this huge hotel, La Falda, in Argentina . . . It was a Nazi center.
"Hitler was removed from the bunker by a helicopter, flown from Austria to Spain, and put on a submarine, the U-530, and brought across the ocean to Argentina."
