Last Friday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day and it inspired me to write the following post about a particular piece of Fake History that recently came to my attention. That night, however, my second son decided he wanted to be born, which delayed me from finishing this for nearly a week, but it also inspired me all the more to keep fighting the good fight against nonsense. I don’t want to see my boys grow up in a nation were fairytales are as readily accepted as facts or given “equal time” in some perverse distortion of fairness. Any husker du, here’s the situation…

It was nearly two weeks ago that a friend asked me, “What do you think of the History Channel show, Hunting Hitler?” I was shocked to learn that the program, which claims Adolf Hitler did not commit suicide at the end of the Second World War and escaped to South America, has two seasons on the air and it’s not alone in this conspiracy subgenre. My friend, who’s no dummy, thought parts of the show sounded convincing but he was clearly skeptical as well. I was certain that the premise of this fable was false but wanted to look into the details a bit before passing any definitive public judgements.

WHO IS BOB BAER?

The principle “investigator” in Hunting Hitler is Bob Baer, a former CIA man who cashed out for a conspiracy career. Like one-time Nixon Aid and compulsive liar, Roger Stone, Baer is quick to proclaim that he’s, “not a conspiracy theorist,” and simply follows the evidence wherever it leads. Of course, if these men actually did that, they wouldn’t have anything to peddle. Check out Bear being interviewed by Alex Jones (aka Captain Disinformation), and his interactions with a couple of 9-11 “Truthers” on the street in this video:

The fact that Bear would appear on Jones’ program and they got along so well together is a huge red flag. The fact that he thrives on asking questions that are rooted in partial truths, at best, and filled with allusions to wild, unrealistic accusations, while never fully crossing the line and saying, “I’m a truther too,” is sickening. For example, the story about the five Israelis who were detailed after filming the Twin Towers on fire and apparently smiling and/or laughing is real, to a point. The crucial fact that Bear gets wrong, however, and which makes the story far less sinister, is that there is no evidence the Israelis were there in advance of the first plane hitting the first tower. Like the other onlookers that day they had no advanced knowledge of the attack and there is zero evidence that Israel was involved in 9-11 in anyway! What is particularly disgusting about this story, and the way Bear chooses to misrepresent it, is the fact that Jew hating is the mother of all conspiracy theories and this story in particular has been used by others to blatantly accuse “The Jews” of being behind 9-11; going so far as to claim that, “4,000 Jews stayed home that day.” You don’t get in bed with trash like this unless you are trashy.

Another extremely troubling part of this video comes at the very end when Bear claims, “I know the guy that went into his broker in San Diego and said ‘cash me out, it’s going down tomorrow,’” the day before 9-11. Then he adds that the man’s brother, “worked in the White House.” Really? And you didn’t take these “facts” to anyone in law enforcement or any credible news outlets? These claims would be very easy things to verify if they were true. It seems obvious to me that Bear is more interested in trying to look cool in front of a couple of gullible truthers than he is sincerely interested in the thousands of people murdered on 9-11. His behavior is pathetic and it’s even more pathetic that the inappropriately named “History” Channel would choose to work with someone like this.

THE SHOW

Despite Bob Bear’s more than questionable character, I watched an episode of Hunting Hitler (S01E03: Escape from Berlin) and part of the next (S01E04: The Tunnel). I quickly found the presentation of its facts and innuendos to be dishonest and illogical. For example, they talk about Hanna Reitsch, a rare female Nazi pilot who was in Hitler’s Bunker for a couple days near the end. She flew Generaloberst Robert Ritter von Greim into Berlin to meet with Hitler and out again two days later. According to the show, the fact that Reitsch could get out of Berlin in a plane, “certainly sent a very strong message to Hitler that if she could do it, he certainly could.” They then go through a greatly drawn out sequence walking around subways and abandoned airport tunnels to prove that there were likely tunnels available to Hitler at the time that could have theoretically got him from his bunker to the Tempelhof Airport without going above ground. Since Hitler’s, “last public appearance,” was April 20, 1945, and there were several planes that apparently took off on April 21 from Tempelhof, the show concludes that Hitler could have got to the airport undetected and left on one of those planes. There are so many problems with this tale, including:

  • Hanna Reitsch, who proved escape from Berlin was possible, as Hunting Hitler puts it, and inspired Hitler, didn’t fly into the city until April 26 and out again on April 28, long after the day the show pretends that Hitler escaped from the city.
  • Not only do we have the eyewitness testimony of Reitsch and von Greim about visiting Hitler but we have the testimony of many others, include those who were there until the very end, when he committed suicide and his body was cremated in a gasoline fire.
  • Hitler was last filmed outside the bunker on April 20, giving medals to child soldiers, but he was seen in the public areas of the bunker up until his suicide on April 30 and he was photographed surveying the damage from Allied bombers on April 28.

  • Reitsch did not land or take off from Tempelhof, because it was too dangerous. She had to use a road that the troops on the ground had turned into a makeshift runway. It is also well known that her flight out of Berlin was the last plane to leave the besieged city.
  • Reitsch and von Greim were give poison vials by Hitler, with which to kill themselves, if it became necessary. The same kind of vials that Hitler and his longtime mistress and short-lived wife Eva Braun used, along with many others who kill themselves rather than be captured by the Russians or face a future without Hitler to lead them.
  • When Reitsch was captured by the Allies at the end of the war she expressed regret that she was not able to stay in the bunker and die at Hitler’s side. She also continued to be a loyal National Socialist until her death in 1979, refusing to the very end to renounce Hitler and the faith she had placed in him.
  • Reitsch and von Greim, like all the other eyewitnesses who survived the bunker had no doubt that Hitler died there. The accounts they all gave also call into question Hitler’s sanity in those final days. He seemed to have no realistic sense of how few troops he had left and wanted to pretend that he was not out of options, despite every fact that was presented to him, until the last possible moment. He was not a man with the presence of mind or the desire to plan for escape.

In short, Hunting Hitler’s scenario for Hitler escaping Berlin on April 21 (or any other day) makes no sense and has zero credibility, yet they have gone on and on from there, pursuing “leads” about where their imaginary Hitler went and what he did after the war.

Lenny DePaul, who Hunting Hitler bills as a Former Commander with the U.S. Marshals and, “One of the most skilled manhunters in the world,” claims in E03 that when he tracks a fugitive he has to get inside the criminal’s mind and know, “what his every thought is.” But he seems to know very little about how Hitler thought and he clearly spent no time learning anything substantive about this madman. Instead, he looks exclusively for “clues” that suggest Hitler may have tried to escape Berlin and then asks how Hitler would did it? Later he talks about how, “Any individual on the run,” has the same mindset, “Escape, escape, escape. He’s going to do whatever it takes.” In other words, DePaul assumes that Hitler was an individual on the run, despite no evidence of this and a wealth of evidence to the contrary, and he then applies some generic motivations to Hitler rather than understand Hitler’s particular mindset at the time of his suicide. There is no investigation here and no reason to believe anything DePual, Bear, and company present.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

Hitler had opportunities to leave Berlin and some tried to convince him to do so but he refused. Hitler was not, by any reports or indications, concerned with is own life or his people as much as he was obsessed with murdering Jews. Hitler was a fanatical conspiracy theorists, who was convinced that Jewry had to be stopped and he was willing to divert much needed manpower from the frontline fighting to ensure that as many Jews were rounded up and executed as possible. Hitler was still railing against the Jews and blaming them for starting the war in his, “Political Testimony,” which he dictated to his secretary, Traudl Junge, in the bunker, on April 29, and signed in front of her, before marrying Eva Braun in a public ceremony in the bunker. In that same document, Hitler stated that he was choosing death rather than falling into the hands of his enemies and having his body desecrated in, “spectacle, presented by the Jews, for the diversion of the hysterical masses.” He made this decision one day after the former dictator of Italy, Benito Mussolini, was killed, along with his mistress, and his remains were put on public display.

Anyone who has spent any time actually studying Hitler knows that these were the thoughts on his mind at the end, not, “Escape, escape, escape.” This is why he not only took poison and shot himself in the same moment but had his body burned with the last of the gasoline his men could siphon from the cars in the motorpool above the bunker. The man tasked with carrying out Hitler’s cremation was Otto Günsche, who stood outside the door as Hitler and Eva killed themselves, then personally directed the removal of the bodies and burning. Günsche was captured and spent more than a decade in a Soviet prison, where he was questioned repeatedly about Hitler for Stalin, who wanted to know everything he could about his adversary and how he died. To believe that Günsche successfully lied all those years during his imprisonment, and continued to lie until his death in 2003, along with so many others who were there as witnesses until the end, is utterly ridiculous and would be laughable if it were not so serious.

SOME QUESTIONS SHOULD NOT BE ASKED

According to Hunting Hitler there is, “no physical evidence,” of Hitler’s death. In fact, enough of Hitler’s teeth survived for a positive identification by the Russians. Stalin, however, chose to keep this information to himself and even claimed that Hitler had escaped because it was in his political interest to keep the boogieman of Hitler’s ghost alive. Nevertheless, Stalin’s people took meticulous records about what actually happened to Hitler. In time, the Soviets decided to destroy the last of Hitler’s remains, as the Allies had decided to destroy the entrance to his bunker and his mountain home, to prevent these things from later being used as some kind of sick holy shrines and artifacts by his misguided followers. The photographic evidence of Hitler’s remains, however, are conclusive, along with the records of their examination, and the overwhelming eyewitness testimony. To say that it is reasonable to doubt what became of Hitler and think he might of gone into retirement while the Jewish State of Israel was created and Germany was divided into two, with half going to the communists, is to completely deny reality. It is no more rational than asking if the Holocaust actually happened and that is exactly where I fear we are headed. How long before the (NOT) Hitler Channel or some other well funded outlet is willing to create a show centered around that sick premise?

According to Tim Kennedy, a former MMA fighter and Special Forces soldier who serves as another “investigator” on Hunting Hitler, the show has a, “$2 million-per-episode budget,” which makes me want to vomit. I can only imagine the good, entertaining, and informative work I could do with two million dollars. It could fund many truthful videos and a polished website where people could find reasonable information and conclusions about the past. Sadly, the funding for sensible projects like mine does not seem to be as readily available as it is for sensationalistic garbage.  I can’t believe that this is where we are at. That such ridiculous amounts of money are being wasted asking questions that already have definitive answers, and that the audience for such foolishness is so large that you can turn a profit from exploiting their ignorance, even when you are spending two million dollars an episode. Please, tell me we are better than this, because I’m losing faith.

DOWNFALL

If you are interested in Hitler’s final days, I highly recommend that you watch Downfall (2004), which is currently streaming on Netflix. It is perhaps the most faithful reproduction of a historical event that I have ever seen, with a heavy reliance on eyewitness testimony and other evidence, and minimal dramatic licence. If you have ever seen any of those, “Hitler reacts to…” videos on YouTube, then you have seen a little piece of Downfall.

Those spoofs can be pretty funny but the actual film is horrific. To think how deeply and faithfully so many people fell for this tyrant’s lies and followed him faithfully into death. It only goes to show the degree to which people can delude themselves and why we must do what we can to stop ourselves from going down a similar road. We must stand up for truth and advocate for reasonable sources of information. We must not give into conspiracy theories or any other alternative facts. Nor should we accept such drivel as merely a TV show, with no real world consequences. It was wild stories and Fake Historical Documents, like The Protocols of the Elders of Zion that “proved” to Hitler he had to fight the Jews. What will be the consequences of shows like Hunting Hitler? It’s hard to say but the longer we accept them the greater the damage will certainly be.

UPDATE:

Since I first published this post the so-called History Channel has given Bob Baer a new show, JFK Declassified, to once again recycle lies and misconceptions about President Kennedy’s assassination.

Baer pretends as if he has found some great new piece of evidence, when all he has is President Johnson asking a question about why Oswald visited the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City. He then twists the facts to make it seem like the Warren Commision never looked at Oswald’s activities in Mexico City in any way. In reality, Chapter 6 of the Commission’s Report, the, “Investigation of Possible Conspiracy” chapter, contains a section on, “Contacts With the Cuban and Soviet Embassies in Mexico City and the Soviet Embassy in Washington, D.C.,” which states:

Eight weeks before the assassination, Oswald traveled to Mexico City where he visited both the Cuban and Soviet Embassies. Oswald’s wife knew of this trip before he went, but she denied such knowledge until she testified before the Commission. The Commission undertook an intensive investigation to determine Oswald’s purpose and activities on this journey, with specific reference to reports that Oswald was an agent of the Cuban or Soviet Governments. As a result of its investigation, the Commission believes that it has been able to reconstruct and explain most of Oswald’s actions during this time. A detailed chronological account of this trip appears in appendix XIII.

It goes on from there and makes it clear that the Commission looked closely into this matter. Oswald was a nut who once immigrated to the Soviet Union and later tried to immigrate to Cuba, but the communists didn’t want him back. This is no mystery here and Baer has nothing new or important to offer!

Why is anyone paying to make this garbage? Why does CNN use Bob Baer as an, “Intelligence and Security Analys?” It’s so frustrating that I can hardly get my work noticed, while well-funded liars are handed such huge megaphones to profit from disinformation.

  1. The show presents good evidence that Hitler did not die in the bunker. I hope they can one day prove Hitker did escape- those dirty Russians found nothing either. It would be cool knowing he got away and had children too!

    1. What utter nonsense! I laid out the facts about why the show is completely false and doesn’t hold up to the mountain of evidence that all real historians agree about; you, like the show, provided nothing but empty rhetoric. The fact that you wish Hitler had children speaks volumes about just how warped and sad your worldview is.

      1. I discovered your blog quite by accident (through the Fair Play for JFK page on FB) and saw this article randomly. I have watched “Hunting Hitler” and was intrigued, but I have to admit that I did not have enough of a base of knowledge to know how honest they were. I had vaguely remembered seeing a documentary that claimed that the remains that survived weren’t actually Hitler’s, but again, without knowledge, it is easy to be fooled. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t really thought too much about doing a lot of research in this area–though I had to be honest, I did not consider that there was a survivor that was tasked with actually burning Hitler’s body…though in hindsight, it should have been obvious.

        Having said that, I have actually treated “Hunting Hitler” as an examination of what was possible–even understanding that this was not their intent. Still, after a few episodes, the premise got quite tedious and I haven’t watched in a while. It is sad, though, that some things get such funding without any real premise other than “this could have happened.”

      2. Thanks for your thoughts, Eric. If this was presented as a sci-fi, alternate world story, that would be one thing, but to present these lies as “history” is very dangerous. I don’t know how else to put it.

        You are right that there was another “documentary” on this subject that claimed to have done DNA testing on “the remains” and they did not match Hitler’s family. The problem is that these were not the well documented remains found by the Soviets; these were bone fragments collected years later from the area where Hitler’s body was burned. Obviously there were many people killed in the battle for Berlin and many remains lying around under the surface. To grab some of them and prove they were not Hitler’s is to prove nothing. But that is the way the conspiracy world operates. Very sloppy “facts” put together by very forced “logic.”

        Hope you continue to enjoy the blog.

  2. You seem angry and offended. I have watched a few episodes and I find this show to present an alternative storyline. Cheesey at times but offers a possible truth, never mentioning that it is history, you mention that, not the show.
    Your understanding of the facts is simply a regurgitation of what is already established history…we all know what established history says and most of us believe it, we do not need you to lecture us on the “truth”.
    It is intriguing however, to theorize what could have happened, how plausible and under what circumstances it could have happened. Entertainment, as expensive and it may be. I am sure that if you were given the same budget you would have made a show about what happened based on history books and as entertaining as watching paint dry.
    Relax, and save your anger for those”flat-earth” believers, now, there is a group of people that deserves to be lectured.
    Go back and watch the rest of the episodes, they may be cheesey but they certainly raise questions…and provide little to no answers. One thing is certain, there are/were a lot of nazis in South America during and after WW2.
    Possible? Yes.
    Probable? No.
    Intriguing? For sure.
    And before you go after me, I do not have a vast knowledge of history, I am a skeptical to the bone and I do agree with you that the production value of the show could be much higher.
    So imagine that they had a disclaimer at the beginning of each show that said it was only an alternative version of the established facts and open your mind, let it wonder a little, it feels great.
    Respectfully,

    1. I find it very offensive that men like Bob Baer are willing to corrupt the general public’s understanding of our history and lie about important matters, like the assassination of President Kennedy, 9-11, and the Holocaust, all in the service of making themselves money and getting attention. I am also saddened by the fact that men like you, Fernando, do not take offense to this and chose instead to play mental gymnastics around the truth.

      In your effort to cast me as the intolerant bad guy in your story, you say 1) That the show makes no claim to be history, but 2) It somehow manages to offer, “a possible truth,” about history. That’s like saying, “I make no claim that I can cure cancer but the cancer stops after I treat it.” Now, let’s consider how the History Channel presents the show on their website:

      “According to documents that were declassified by the FBI in 2014, Adolf Hitler may have survived World War II and fled to South America following the fall of Nazi Germany. In this series a team of investigators — led by 21-year CIA veteran Bob Baer and war crimes investigator John Cencich — undertakes a definitive search with the goal of finding out whether the notorious dictator actually survived the war and pulled off one of history’s greatest disappearing acts. The team uncovers a mysterious Nazi lair in the Argentinean jungle and searches for evidence of a missing U-boat that may have transported Hitler out of Europe as Germany collapsed.”

      This isn’t being sold as an, “alternative story” – like Wonder Woman fighting in World War I or Nixon being President for four terms in Watchmen – these are bold and forceful claims that our current understanding of history is wrong, based on a selective reading of FBI files and the alleged discoveries that these alleged experts have made. The “History” Channel (Yes, the name is important) is selling this as history show! It is not a label that I unfair placed on the show.

      As I explained, on point after point, the show is simply wrong and cannot even follow its own internal “logic” (e.g. Hitler could not have been inspired by Hanna Reitsch’s flight out on Berlin on April 26 to make his own fly out on April 21). My argument isn’t, “simply a regurgitation of what is already established history,” it is a chronicle of unbelievable nonsense and downright lies that should be rejected by everyone.

      If you want to believe, despite the evidence, that the show is, “possible,” then I can do nothing to stop you, but please don’t lecture me on how I need to be open minded. What next? We should consider the “possibility” that Hitler didn’t order the annihilation of the Jews in Europe or that no such annihilation ever occurred? This is where historical “open mindedness” has led many people before you who only thought of themselves as “skeptical” and willing to “imagine” that the most substantial facts we know about history are wrong.

      BTW, why don’t you watch the 45 minute documentary I made about the Nazi’s in graduate school, You don’t know Hitler (2006) https://youtu.be/7P73DZyS4Dg. Granted, it was a one man production with no budget but I honestly don’t think you will find it as dull as watching paint dry (and I’m sure you’ll telling me in unflattering terms if you do).

    1. I do not mean to be offensive but it looks like English is not your first language and I fear you probably did not understand all the arguments I made in this post, nor will you understand everything I have to say here, but I will try to make myself clear.

      Like others before you, who have attacked me as “narrow” or “close minded” for daring to lay out the facts and tell the truth about history, you make no effort to consider any of the points I have made. Instead, you simply get mad at me for telling you that the fairytales you believe in are not true.

      You admit that you are young and do not know much about history, yet you are sure that 9-11 was an inside job and that Hunting Hitler might be reasonable, despite all the evidence to the contrary. I do hope that you will stop falling for conspiracy theories as you grow older and learn more. Please take a look at my writings on the subject (start here: https://jamesklambertblog.wordpress.com/writings/) and my documentary, Conspiracy Theorists Lie (2015) http://nomagicbullets.org. If you truly are open minded I am confident that you will learn from these things.

      As for the argument that you made about Native Americans and how history isn’t always right, allow me to be brutally honest and tell you that this is very simplistic misguided reasoning. It is true that historians, and regular people, have viewed European settlement of the Americas differently over time but every single history book, film, TV show, etc. on the subject does agree on some basic facts. First and foremost, the Native Americans occupied this land before the Europeans arrives. Whatever else you believe, this is a solid fact. Now imagine if someone came along and made a TV show claiming that the Natives did not live here before the Europeans came. That would be a clear lie and utter nonsense. It would not be “open minded” to consider what these liars had to say; it would be a waste of time that could only serve to corrupt your understanding of history. But that is the equivalent of what the Hunting Hitler program is doing. It is lying to you about historical facts that NO reasonable historian disputes and there is nothing “narrow minded” about me pointing this out.

      Again, I hope you will make an honest effort to learn some actual history and stop falling for nonsense. Please check out my work if you care about the past and wish to learn from it.

  4. I watch Hunting Hitler to see how far these people will go to prove their argument. I am on a Facebook forum Hunting Hitler which you may want to join. It is unbelievable what people will believe, without a single piece of evidence, no documents, pictures, no credible witnesses, yet they believe. I’ve gone at it with Gerrard WIlliams (Grey Wolf author) on the forum, I think he is delusional. The story of Hitlers escape is ridiculous, zero evidence, but some people want to believe it. People on the site are actually begging for the next season to begin, which it looks like they are going to have a season 3. As if they are ever going to be able to prove Hitler and they also say Borman escaped and lived out there lives in So. America. If such proof existed it would made news by now!

I use to spend time (too much time) on Facebook groups and Twitter talking about the assassination of President Kennedy and it was like banging my head up against a wall of willful ignorance. The conspiracy faithful want to believe what they want to believe and truth, facts, and reason are not about to get in their way. Still, I have my film, Conspiracy Theorists Lie (2015) and I continue to post some things here, for those who are willing to listen, but I mostly avoid social media “debates.” If you are enjoying them, why not post about my Hunting Hitler piece in that Facebook group?

  5. Hi James,

    I watched the complete series (both seasons) and found it really exciting. Because it had been quite some time that I read about Hitler’s final days and the series had made me doubt if what was claimed could be true, I needed to clarify this for myself by checking historical sources.

    As you claim in your blog post, there is no doubt whatsoever that Hitler died in the Bunker in Berlin. Next, to all the eyewitness accounts you already mentioned, there is more evidence like Hitler’s signed Will and Political Testament, signed by the Führer himself on April the 29th at 4:00, that is co-signed -as witnesses- by Bormann, Krebs, Goebbels, and Burgdorf. At least three copies were made, to get Hitler’s last words/propaganda out as well as the Nazi government that should rule after his death. You were also right about Hitler’s mindset: in his Will and Testament (page 4) he stated that he did not want to leave Berlin ” ….I can’t leave the city that is the capital of this Reich.” On the same page: “..I have decided to stay in Berlin and to choose death in the moment when I believe I can no longer hold the position of Führer and Reichskanzler”. (I have translated this from the original German document) There are more quotes to show that Hitler knows that he has been defeated and no sign at all that he sees any other option than to die in the Bunker in his beloved Berlin.

    So unless Hitler’s physical body turns up in South America and his DNA can be verified, the truth is that there is overwhelming evidence that he died as reported on the 30th of April 1945 in Berlin, Germany.

    As said, I enjoyed the series nevertheless because the idea that Hitler has fled and tried somehow to influence the world from elsewhere is as exciting as it is terrible.

    However, I have two major concerns:
    1. Since it is on the History channel a lot of people simply will believe whatever they see (because History channel suggests authority/reliability) or make up their own truth based upon the bits and pieces that are connected in the series;
    2. The series doesn’t balance their findings and leads with the information that we currently see as facts. As investigator’s they should show that it would be a fascinating possibility that Hitler could have fled, but that there are so much more reliable resources that state otherwise that the Hypothesis of Hitler escaping from the Bunker should be rejected.

    Maybe the big underlying problem of all of this is that most people believe what they see/hear and have an opinion on things before they know the facts (One of the reasons the NSDAP came to power in the first place). Why not talk to people yourself, look for reliable sources and information from both pro’s- and con’s and only then form an opinion, but still keep an open mind?

    I hope there will be a season 3 of the series and I am definitely going to watch it to see where all the investigations will lead, if anywhere at all.

    1. Thank you for your thoughts on my post, Patrick. I still find Hunting Hitler to be very disturbing – little better than denying the Holocaust – and I do hope that the so-called History Channel will stop producing conspiracy crap like this. Unfortunately, there is clearly a market for wild speculation and straight up lies, which is the only thing that seems to matter to them.
