WASHINGTON — For roughly 30 years, the FBI kept files on tips and rumors suggesting Adolph Hitler had faked his suicide in a Berlin bunker in 1945 and was hiding somewhere around the world, according to FBI documents available on the agency’s website.

In one of  the many FBI memos, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover wrote on Nov. 13, 1945 to the American Ambassador  in Buenos Aires: “The bureau is in receipt of a report from the Strategic Services Unit of the War Department dated October 23, 1945, concerning the possibility of a “Hitler Hideout” in Argentina.

“One Mrs. Eichorn, reported to be a reputable member of the Argentine society and the properitor of the largest spa hotel in La Falda, Argentina, recently made the following observations:

“That if Hitler should at any time get into difficulty wherein it was necessary for him to find a safe retreat, he would find such safe retreat at her hotel (La Falda) where they had already made the necessary preparations.”

Other FBI memo indicated he might be hiding out in such places as  Denmark or New York.

All that being said, Russian intelligence had information tha on April 29, 1945, Hitler and his female companion Eva Braun killed themselves in the Berlin bunker.

More than six decades later, Adolph Hitler’s name still stirs up trouble.

The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago admonished U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa of eastern Wisconsin for comparing a convicted drug dealer Jose Figueroa’s love of family to Adolf Hitler’s love for his dog.

The Appeals Court, which said the judge’s comments were odd, ordered that Figueroa be re-sentenced, AP reported. He had been sentenced to 20 years in prison for heading up a drug conspiracy.

The judge’s comments came after Figueroa asked for leniency in sentencing because of his love for his family, the AP reported.

Randa responded, according to AP: “Hitler was admired by his family … loved his dog. Yet he killed 6 million Jews.”
