Adolf Hitler survived World War II and was living in Colombia for several months in 1954, a newly declassified CIA document among the JFK files said.

The document was just released as part of files relating to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Newsweek reported.

The information contained in the intelligence memo was based on an informant who revealed to a CIA agent that Adolf Hitler was still alive.

The 1954 report noted that Phillip Citroen, who was co-owner of the former Maracaibo Times, claimed to have met a man who “strongly resembled and claimed to be Adolf Hitler.”

The two met while Citroen was working on the railroads in Colombia.

Hitler was said to have commanded the respect of Germans residing in the area, who would greet him with the Nazi salute and refer to him as “der Fuhrer.”

Adding weight to these claims, Citroen possessed a photo of himself sitting next to the man he said was Hitler.

His claims were met with scepticism, given the tone of the document, but the allegations sparked debate about whether Hitler could have escaped South America after the war.

The History Channel said the general belief is that Hitler committed suicide in 1945 when he swallowed a cyanide capsule and shot himself in the head.

The dictator had holed himself up in a bunker to live out his final days as Germany collapsed under increased pressure from the Allied forces. His body was believed to have been burned outside the bunker.

The FBI reported that, although it suspected Hitler had committed suicide, there was no evidence to confirm this.

“At the time, it was feared that Hitler may have escaped in the closing days of the war, and searches were made to determine if he was still alive,” a report said.

“FBI Files indicate that the Bureau investigated some of the rumors of Hitler’s survival.”

In 2009 a top Russian security official told CNN that Hitler’s remains were reportedly recovered by the Soviet Army in May 1945 and later burned and thrown into a river. However, the report garnered widespread doubt as officials dismissed the claims.

According to Newsweek, a piece of the skull believed to belong to Hitler was analyzed by Nick Bellantoni of the University of Connecticut who reported that the bone belonged to a woman aged between 20 and 40.
