A wreckage of a German U-boat was discovered on the shores of Argentina. Historians believe that this is the proof that German officials escaped to Argentina after the World War II.
It is even believed that Hitler was one of those who fled to Argentina.
Historian Fernando Martin Gomez revealed that this wreckage could belong to a submarine known as the Seehund. This submarine could have been traveled to South America.
According to him, at least 5,000 Nazis escaped to Argentina when the war was over, including top ranking officials of the Nazi organization. The total of 9,000 Nazi war criminals escaped to Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.
These countries were chosen as a sanctuary by Nazi refugees because they never took sides during the WWII.
The idea that Hitler escaped to Argentina is becoming increasingly popular. This theory is supported by numerous declassified documents, which lead to such conclusion.
One of those declassified documents reveals details on the arrest of Herman Freudenstadt in 1987 in Argentina. During his trial, he revealed that he escaped to Argentina with Hitler in a small submarine. Even though such revelation was controversial at the time, it was discharged by specialists.
It seems that the discovery of a U-boat actually gives credibility to the testimonials of Herman Freudenstadt.
