Elderly man from Salta, Argentina, claims that he is the German dictator Adolf Hitler and that he spent 70 years in hiding.
In one interview for newspaper ‘El Patriota’ he claims that he escaped from Germany 1945, with passport on name Herman Guntherberg, which was fake produced by Gestapo near the end of the war.
He said that he has decided to not hide himself anymore, after the Israeli secrets services abandoned their policy of pursuing former Nazi war criminals last year officially.
“I’ve been blamed for a lot of crimes that I’ve never committed. Because of that, I’ve had to spend more than half of my life hiding from Jews, so I’ve had my punishment already.”
He claim that he is preparing his autobiography, in order to bring back his image in public, and it will be finished in September under the name Adolf Hitler.
“I’ve been depicted as a bad guy only because we lost the war. When people read my side of the story, it will change the way the perceive me.”
Many people, include his wife Ms. Martinez, believes that he is not really Adolf Hitler and that he is suffering from dementia.
His wife said that he has never spoke about Hitler until 2 years ago when he started showing signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
“Sometimes, he would forget who I was and where he was. He looked like he was in trance, and he would start talking about Jews and demons. Then he’d come back to normal.”
But she believes that maybe he was a Nazi, but she is sure he is not a Hitler.
In Israel and in the American Jewish community, after his claims, sparked an animated debate concerning the future of surviving Nazi war criminals.
Mossad ambition has been proven and global reach in the past with the capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in 1960 in Argentina, but it has abandoned this mission over recent years.
Center for trying to find and prosecute Nazi criminals, the Wiesenthal, criticized Israel in March, saying the Jewish state was ‘barely cooperating’ to its mission.
About 70 years after World War II, some of the states is in quest to find and prosecute the surviving Nazis and most of them will certainly die without ever being punished for their crimes.
