Argentine Nazi Dark Migration
This is another retelling of the tale of the purported escape of a cadre of devoted Nazis in several U-boats to the Argentine. No one actually reports that Hitler was ever seen among them and the reports from the bunker are rather convincing and would need a conspiracy beyond the possible.
I rather suspect that it was not in Hitler’s make up to do other than any war lord would do, but to shoot himself at the bitter end. Yet such an escape may well have been planned and followed by the escape team itself at war’s end when it was obvious that none of the hierarchy would be joining them. It would certainly provide a false trail. They also had the escape loot.
The fact that a few did surrender in Argentine waters certainly conforms that some made the effort. The missing ones may well have been scuttled or even sunk or as likely simply did not exist at that point in the war. Once unloaded, there was nothing left to do.
That fact alone gives credence to the tale itself, and it is a fact that a surprising number of right resumes made it to that part of the world after the war. They are all gone now.

On Sunday, July 11, 2004, the Chilean newspaper Las Ultimas Noticias published a brief interview with an author whose book had created a stir throughout
South America. Abel Basti’s
Bariloche Nazi openly suggested that the German Führer Adolf Hitler did not die
in a Berlin bunker, but managed to escape to South America along with his
mistress Eva Braun. Both spent their last days in the Argentinean mountain
resort of San Carlos de Bariloche in the Andes.
According to Basti, Hitler died in 1960. No date for Braun’s death has been put forth. One of the locations identified as a hideaway for Hitler in
the San Ramón estancia or ranch, owned by the German principality of
Schaumburg-Lippe. Another is the Argentina Inalco
Mansion on the shores of
Huapi. Hitler’s days in Lake Nahuel
were apparently uneventful. He went for long hikes along the shores of Nahuel
Huapi and took in the clean Andean air. His trademark mustache shaven and his
hair gone gray, the architect of millions of deaths had settled down as a

the British Admiralty had issued a command to all German submarines in the high
seas advising them to hoist a black flag or emblem after surfacing and to
turn themselves in at the nearest port. This directly countermanded coded
message 0953/4, the Nazi fleet’s last official communication, which advised
U-boat commanders of the surrender and directed that their vessels be scuttled
before falling into enemy hands. Germany
As of May 29, 1945, the seas were believed to have been cleared of Nazi subs, until one of them pulled into the Portuguese
The Allied Command began to wonder if Hitler could have escaped aboard one of
his subs. A few weeks later, the U.S Navy reported that four or five U-boats
remained unaccounted for. Hunted and running out of fuel, it was a matter of
time before the dead-enders turned up. But where? port of Leixoes
On July 10, the Argentinean submarine base at
was surprised by the arrival of
U-530, commanded by Otto Vermouth. A month later, U-977 under the command of
Heinz Schaeffer surfaced off the Argentinean coast and surrendered to two
coastal patrol vessels engaged in exercises. Mar del Plata
Were there more rogue submarines somewhere in the
In the late summer of 1945, Basti alleges, two former crewmen of the battleship Graf Spee (scuttled outside the city of
Uruguay, in 1939 to keep it
from being captured by the British Navy) traveled to an undisclosed location in
Patagonia to rendezvous with a submarine
carrying some very important exiles from the shattered Third Reich.
Basti continues: “The sailors say that they slept in a Patagonian ranch and in the early morning hours were on hand to receive the submarines. They brought trucks and loaded baggage and people onto them. One researcher spoke with the sailors—now deceased—and they confirmed the story.”
The convoy of Kriegsmarine U-boats consisted of ten vessels carrying at least 60 passengers each, Adolf Hitler among them. According to Basti, the sailors went public with their story in 1950.
Allied forces reconstructed the trajectory of the U-977 from its departure from
on May 2, 1945, to its arrival in Argentinean territorial waters in August
thanks to the U-boat’s log. Captain Schaeffer and his crew had sailed
underwater from Norway Bergen to the South
Atlantic without surfacing.
Was this submarine part of the ten-ship convoy that the nameless sailors of the Graf Spee had received in
A book written in 1956 by Jochen Brennecke, another crewman of the Graf Spee, described having loaded half a dozen trucks with a series of boxes stamped geheime Reichssache, which had been unloaded from submarines off the Argentine coast, and later taken to an estancia or ranch deep in Patagonia. Other authors have suggested that these boxes contained nearly 90 kilos of platinum and 2,000 kilos of gold and precious jewels that formed part of the Waffen-S.S.’s treasure: enough to finance a war of resistance from a hidden location.
Stories like this one, or their variants, have been told for the past 50 years. The Führer and his closest advisors board a submarine (the Baltic
port of Kiel
is often mentioned as the point of departure) and take off for parts unknown,
usually Antarctica or some South American location ( Brazil,
Paraguay, Argentina, or perhaps even ) from
which the Reich could reorganize and strike back at the world. Some versions
posit that advanced technology in the form of “flying saucers” was brought
along during the escape, and that the blond haired, blue-eyed saucernauts were
perfect Aryans achieved through advanced genetic engineering. Chile
But what Abel Basti probably doesn’t know (and what many Nazi history buffs have probably overlooked) is that Hitler had cast a predatory eye on
Latin America long before the rise of the thousand-year
Reich. According to an article in Executive Intelligence Review by William F.
Wertz, Jr., titled “The Nazi-Instigated National Synarchist Union of Mexico,” the Führer’s greater geopolitical strategy
included Latin America as a fertile and very
enticing part of the world to be brought to heel.
According to Wertz, Hitler believed that the
was “the best and richest country in the world, with the laziest and most
dissipated population under the sun…a country that cries for a capable master.
With the treasure of Mexican soil, Mexican Republic could be rich and great!”
The source of this quote is Hermann Rauschning, the governor of Germany Danzig who left the Nazi cause in 1934 and who is better
known in conspiracy and paranormal circles as the source of information about
Hitler’s terrifying contacts with extrahuman forces.
Hitler did not envision hundreds of thousands of infantrymen and mechanized divisions crossing the Atlantic to win this prize, rather, his plan was to make use of German nationals already living in Latin American countries, subverting the local political process with the assistance of the German industrial and economic presence in
It isn’t clear if he ever imagined having to take refuge in the lands he saw as
ripe for the taking.
In the Shadow of the Swastika
The long, hot summer of 1945 was a busy one indeed. Gestapo chief Heinrich Miller emerged from a submarine at
Beach in southern province while other U-boats
were reportedly seen at Claromecó and Reta. In his book ODESSA al Sur (The
Southern Odessa), Jorge Camarasa states: “Someone had told me that Heinrich
Miller had come ashore at Orense in 1945, and that the trawler Ottolenghi had
transferred him to Necochea, from where he headed to [the town of] Coronel
Pringles to organize the escape of sailors from the Graf Spee who were interned
in the old Sierra de la Ventana hotel.” Could some of these sailors have formed
part of Hitler’s welcoming committee, as described in Bariloche Nazi? Buenos Aires
Camarasa worked closely with the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Buenos Aires on the extradition of Nazi war criminals, and his research turned up some fascinating information. Over 50 documents from
naval authorities were found regarding reports of U-boats on the Patagonian
littoral in a 40-day period, including a landing in Quequén and multiple
sightings off the coastal towns of Comodoro Rivadavia, Ingeniero White, and Oeste.
Camarasa believes that another landing occurred near the current location of
Villa Gessell, where small numbers of personnel debarked with boxes of unknown
content and remained there for a certain time before leaving to other
destinations, perhaps elsewhere in South America. San Antonio
In the 1990s, the World Jewish Congress pressured then-president Carlos Menem to declassify all information regarding the presence of Nazi war criminals in Argentina, but it would not be until May 2003 that President Néstor Kirchner ordered his Ministry of the Interior to look into the “dark migration” of war criminals to his country, a task which started with the opening of that department’s files. Entry cards for one Helmut Gregor (an alias employed by “Doctor Death,” Josef Mengele), for example, report his arrival in Buenos Aires in 1949 aboard a Panamanian freighter, describing him as a 38 year-old Catholic lathe operator from Germany.
Another investigative journalist, Uki Goñi, unearthed more leads on the Nazi migration southward and the complicity of government functionaries in allowing the entry not only of former Gestapo, SS, and military personnel, but also members of the Croatian Ustasche (at least 15 war criminals among 7,000 immigrants).
Two to four years after the U-boat landings, “superstars” like Adolf Eichmann and Erich Priebke began to arrive in

bishop who facilitated their escape through the port city of . Genoa
Children of the Reich
In 1956, a land purchase took place in the Chilean locality of La Parra, some 400 kilometers south of
de Chile. The buyer was a man named Paul Shafer, who quickly established the
“Sociedad Benefactora y Educacional Dignidad” as a settlement for a small knot
of European emigrés. Before long, the tiny settlement had evolved into a major
center of activity, complete with an airstrip, several factories, filling
stations, trucks, schools, and its own power station. It became known as
“Colonia Dignidad” and become the focus of Nazi activity in Santiago , playing a major role in
aiding the Pinochet dictatorship. Chile
This was just part of a process that had been taking place for decades. The first National Socialist organization in
was established in the town of
in April 1931; within eight years, the Chilean Nazi Party had over 1,000
card-carrying members, most of them influential figures from the spheres of
business and politics. Osorno
Serrano’s works of occult fascism appeared as a trilogy whose first book, published in 1984, bears the title Adolfo Hitler, el último avatara (Hitler, the last avatar) and tries to establish a link between Nazism and the Germanic mystical tradition, the Knights Templar, the ancient Aryans, and the belief in underground civilizations of supermen like Agarttha. In Serrano’s viewpoint, his ideology seeks to perform the holy task of keeping the world safe from a Zionist-Masonic plot for world domination and enshrining the sacred teachings handed down from the hidden realm presided over by the “King of the World.”
