So many people noticed this story, and sent it along - including colleague Richard Hoagland - that I have to resort to some high octane speculation today. As you may or may not have heard, a large cache of "Nazi memorabilia", if we may call it that, was recently discovered in Argentina and put on display:

Behind a bookcase, a secret passageway leads to a trove of Nazi artifacts in Argentina

(See also this article in the National Post, copy and paste into your browser:

There is a paragraph in the second article that made me chuckle:

Police say one of the most-compelling pieces of evidence of the historical importance of the find is a photo negative of Hitler holding a magnifying glass similar to those found in the boxes.

“We have turned to historians and they’ve told us it is the original magnifying glass” that Hitler was using, said Nestor Roncaglia, head of Argentina’s federal police. “We are reaching out to international experts to deepen” the investigation.


The main hypothesis among investigators and member of Argentina’s Jewish community is that they were brought to Argentina by a high-ranking Nazi or Nazis after World War II, when the South American country became a refuge for fleeing war criminals, including some of the best known.

Now, note the last sentence above is widely separated from the first two in the article, but nonetheless, the implication is clear: (1) high-ranking Nazi's escaped at the end of World War II, (2) many made their way to Argentina.

Really!?!?!?  Say it isn't so!!!

Now, as someone who has spent years investigating this story of postwar Nazi survival in some detail, I always have to laugh when stories like this capture the attention of the corporate controlled lamestream media, who always manage to make the story about "isolated fugitives" of relatively low rank, like Eichmann or Barbie or Mengele. Occasionally, as in this article, they show us pictures of the house, or the "Nazi stuff" in it, and we're supposed to be appropriately awed and "creeped out" that anything like this would survive anywhere, much less be collected by anyone. And that's the way we're supposed to react to this story...

...we're not supposed to read between the lines...

...which, of course, I did and am about to do again. Notice two things here: (1) the timing of this find, and (2) the implications of what was found, for if one reads the above three quoted statements carefully and in conjunction with each other, what they are saying is (a) we found a magnifying glass, (b) it looks like a magnifying glass in a picture of Hitler holding a magnifying glass and looking at something, (c) this could therefore be Hitler's magnifying glass, and we're checking into the possibility with "experts".

Implication: "Gee, this may be Hitler's magnifying glass... (insert nervous chuckle here)... Gee, I wonder what it's doing here in Argentina and how it got here (insert another nervous laugh)."

Most readers of my books are aware that, like many people, I initially "bought" the  story that Hitler died in the bunker under the Reich Chancellery in Berlin in 1945, the victim of suicide. And why shouldn't we believe the story? After all, all the people reporting the story were Nazis, and we know what paragons of virtue and truth they were, right? It was precisely that "little" problem that has caused many researchers to examine the suicide-in-the-bunker story, and while we may be disagreed on the details of his escape, there is mounting evidence that he did make it out of Berlin and spent some time in South America...

...perhaps with "artefacts" such as these, for the hint of the article, at least with respect of the magnifying glass, is that it was Adolf Hitler's magnifying glass, and that implies that some of the rest of the trove might also be his personal possessions.

Which brings us to the question of timing. A number of people who shared various versions of this story with me, including Mr. Hoagland, wondered about the timing of the find: why now? I have no easy answer to that, but it is intriguing that this would be "discovered" and released now amid a climate of growing tensions in Europe over Merkel's austerity and immigration policies, amid growing tensions between Washington and Berlin over Russia and over Europe's very evident desire to move to closer relationships not only with Russia but with China.

Here it may be a case of "you tell me," for why, now, would anyone want to draw attention, via this not-too-subtle means, to the potential survival of Hitler after the war, and to "treasure troves" of Nazi memorabilia hidden in a secret passageway behind a bookcase in Buenos Aires?

See you on the flip side...

    Latest follow-up on this story from the Washington Post.
    Read all about it !

    “As we truthfully reported in our reputable never-tell-a-lie publication, a large cache of Nazi memorabilia was recently discovered in (wait for it, oh the suspense and intrigue – ed) a secret passage behind a bookshelf.”

    Note to self:
    Wow, I’m on the edge of my seat! It reads like a movie script (not to worry, it’s being worked on right now).
    Actually, pretty sure I saw something just like this in the Castle Wolfenstein shoot-em-up game.
    You know, fire at the large Nazi flag with your rocket launcher which exposes the bookshelf. Blow away bookshelf with said rocket launcher, and the secret passage is exposed.
    Enter the secret passage and all kind of goodies can be found while you explore the various dungeons and caverns.
    Great fun to be had!

    Anyway, back to the Washington Post follow-up.
    “And now, after finding yet another bookshelf in the secret passageway with yet another secret passageway behind it, you – dear reader – better get ready for what the brave agents found in a secret chamber in the secret passageway behind the other secret passageway (we might be lost here, we’re not sure, still checking our facts and GPS location).

    Anyway, are you ready about what they found? Or better, WHO they found?


    Vladimir Putin!
    The Nazi collection belongs to him! His own personal stash!

    And there he was polishing Hitler’s bust just as the agents heroically burst their way into his lair.
    According to an Intel source who wishes to remain anonymous, he tried to use human shields, then he tried his own home-made WMD and lastly threatened to expose his bare chest while riding a horse.
    This last threat so scared the agents that they hurriedly scampered off, back to their home base where they are still recovering from their nightmares. Victim support is being offered by every available tax-payer funded agency.

    Putin was last seen riding bare-chested off into the sunset.

  2. Joseph P. Farrell on June 26, 2017 at 7:58 pm

    He used a magnifying glass most often when looking at aerial reconnaissance pictures or maps. But yes, it is well known that he wore glasses, and one can occasionally find the rare picture of him wearing his spectacles.

    eh??? when did this happen??

  5. Robert Barricklow on June 25, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    Just a little follow-up on the dialogue herein in reference to the previous memory wipe post. The thread here are ancient artifacts of which Himmler’s division sought & found. The question of where they went is as interesting as what wasn’t found, and the continual search, here on Earth, and in the neighborhood solar system.

    • Robert Barricklow on June 25, 2017 at 6:44 pm

      Those ancient “alien” artifacts were highly technical and/or magical[think of it as light tech versus dark tech].
      undoubtedly an intelligent species would coevolve with their technology. That is, until the technology gets too far ahead. There the coevolution comes to a crossroads; a way station, a way station, if you will.
      Now, the greater the difference between the two entities, the greater the need for a well-designed interface.

      • Robert Barricklow on June 26, 2017 at 9:56 pm

        As a result, interfaces are developed that are increasingly natural, integrating them ever more closely with our lives & our bodies, our hearts and our minds. This could even become intuitively keyed to our spiritual beings[advanced beyond belief integration requiring not only deep technologies, but deep timer developments to achieve.
        Thus this “Eden/Paradise” would exist for all & one at once. The key to unlocking it would be to access said interface “naturally” through spiritual awareness not realized in today’s culture.
        The strategic foresight he developer and the user. In this case, the user must awaken to the universe before them.[Assumes whoever developed this Eden was able to avoid a decoupling from a technology that surpassed the builder/god.

        • Robert Barricklow on June 26, 2017 at 10:04 pm

          If one looks at it from the lens of today’s product, one assumes these ideas would be designed to slip into some well-worn grooves of people’s expectations. They would have been architects of familiar surprises. Its distribution would be as important a description as its features. It is rarely sufficient to design the perfect “product”[today’s vernacular] w/o designing an equally thoughtful plan to get i8t to the “right” people[the interfaces intuitive “key”].
          A changing medium, though will have changed the message[ no longer profit-based, but spiritually-based]

            Whatever you take with you, take it back with you… (and that includes your trash).

        Just wanted to add that when you visit a place of nature and you listen and Feel – you start to connect with what is a part of yourself and the earth. You begin to drop some of the layers and layers of ego we have been taught to build. The longer you spend there the better. When you leave that special place you feel lighter, happier and peaceful. Everyone can find that special place but children seem to connect much faster because they don’t have so many layers to shed to find their higher self.

    Timing? Harry Cooper of Sharkhunters is planning yet another trip to Argentina to investigate Martin Bormann’s time there. His investigative team has been looking around for potential witnesses and contacts who might know something about his time there. As the good Dr. says frequently this is a case of “you tell me”, but when I saw this article AFTER the announcement of his latest trip and its intent, it seemed convenient for someone to throw Nazi flag up just prior to his visit to possibly muddy the waters a bit before his arrival. It could have been a signal to run…

  8. Tommi H on June 25, 2017 at 3:28 pm

    This nazi memorabilia stash is worth of several million dollars, maybe tens of millions, maybe more… Usually the buyers are from Middle-East. So go figure, who has the money in Middle-East and why Trump started his grand fiasco from there? I don´t know… but I can guess.

  9. goshawks on June 25, 2017 at 1:44 pm

    Assuming anything of this story is real, it would be interesting to fingerprint-analyze all the items in the ‘trove’. If only the magnifying glass has Hitler’s fingerprints (assuming the picker-uppers haven’t destroyed the fingerprints by doing so), then it could be a ‘memento’. If multiple objects in the ‘trove’ have Hitler’s fingerprints (and maybe DNA), then this would lean towards Hitler being in that vicinity for a period. Those fingerprints might even be useful to identify Who visited Hitler post-war…

  10. Nannie on June 25, 2017 at 1:02 pm

    I know this for years. Hitler escaped with help from the CIA.

      “Hitler escaped with help from the CIA”- not true- the CIA was first established in 1947-

      read Mike Sparks’ monumental book “James Bond is Real” about how Ian Fleming (his James Bond books were encrypted messages) was the main person who helped Hitler to escape Berlin;

      another source to make any sense of this whatsoever is Greg Hallett’s very detailed/compelling book “Hitler Was a British Agent”-

    As an aside, the Nazi paraphernalia weren’t the only objects uncovered. There were also ancient Egyptian artifacts recovered as well. There are some objects that the US media doesn’t show in the photos they print/post. If you go to the Clarin article linked in the WAPO article you see a Nazi sphinx statuette:
    also visible in this video from Ruptly along with other Egyptian objects: This footage from Argentinian TV gives a good look at the collection(s?):

    If there is a stalwart warrior against Nazis/Fascism it’s Russia. Whereas the U.S. recruited many in Paperclip and grafted some onto the newly established CIA.
    Putin’s Nazis in DC are what driving others to Russia and away from the fascist transnational corporations within the Anglosphere.

    This just add to the rumors of Hitler escape since 1945 Stalin never believed that he pop himself in a bunker. Then there’s the infamous Mel Brooks music video The Hitler Rap which only in comic way confirm our worst nightmares he flew town while the getting was good. I also remember a 1965 cartoon in a magazine about aliens capturing Hitler and they sending a band of aliens who look like him to infiltrate Earth disguise as him.

  14. Aridzonan_13 on June 25, 2017 at 10:50 am

    One of my favorite JPF stories is about the book(title I’ve forgotten??) that claimed “Project Valkyrie” was successful and Hitler was assassinated on our about 1943. Where from that point on, t the Werhmacht went into a tailspin of bad tactical decisions and Hitler never made another public speech. Hmmmm? I believe, it also claimed that multiple Hitler sightings after the war were due to his ~5 or so doubles. The IV Reich (post Hitler) decided to morph into a Spectre like organization.. Let’s not forget the CIA’s Nazi roots , BCCI, etc… And as always, Argentina and it’s proximity to Antarctica… The Nazi / Antarctica connection looms large. Due to this fact, the roots of the Break-Away Civ must be examined very closely.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on June 26, 2017 at 8:07 pm

      No, it was not Valkyrie that was successful. That was the 1944 bomb plot. If you’ll recall, in the Tom Cruise movie, the film opens with Hitler flying into Smolensk, Russia with a fighter escort. The purpose of his visit is never really made clear in the movie, but in the movie General Henning von Treschkow, played by Kenneth Branagh, places a bomb on Hitler’s aircraft disguised as two wine bottles, which were on pressure fuses to arm above a certain altitude, and detonate below a certain altitude. In the movie, of course (and in the standard histories), this attempt to get rid of Hitler, which is in fact an historical attempt, was made between March and July of 1943, PRIOR to the 1943 (failed) German offensive at Kursk. The book in question to which I have referred, is the spy-thriller novel by British author Collin Forbes, and the book is called The Leader and the Damned. In the book, General von Treschkow’s plot succeeds, and Hitler’s plane blows up while attempting to land at his East Prussia headquarters near Rastenburg. Martin Bormann then takes control, cleaning up the mess and replacing Hitler with one of Hitler’s doubles, but actually himself ruling Germany from 1943 to the end of the war. At the end of the novel, however, Forbes places an epilogue, recounting that the story was originally recounted to him as truth by someone in the British secret services. IN the epilogue he points out a number of anomalies that tend to support the hypothesis, one of which is that after this flight, Hitler never made another public appearance or speech, speaking only on one occasion on the radio, shortly after the 1944 bomb plot.
      In the novel, the purpose of Hitler’s original flight and conference at Smolensk (in reality, it was at his headquarters in Vinnitsa, in the Ukraine, I believe) was to outline a plan to transfer some sixty divisions from the western Front, leaving a threadbare skeleton covering force, to the Eastern Front to deal a final death blow to the Soviet Union, which, had it been done, would probably have happened. In the novel, because Hitler dies in the explosion, this does NOT occur, and the 1943 offensive took place as it actually happened, without the extra divisions, leading to the German defeat at Kursk.

    Well, when the National Post, which just as believable as Natural News, has to post this caveat:

    “The photograph was not released to the public, but was shown to The Associated Press on the condition that it not be published.”

    You know the story about the magnifying glass has credibility. Sarcasm.

    As everyone says, “just shocking to find Nazi-era relics being collected in Argentina”–quotation marks of irony. They’re being collected today in Idaho.

    Levenda’s theory about Hitler escaping to Indonesia in 1946/47, after staying in Austria, makes more sense. He was quiet frail and drugged by 1945, plus hadn’t been seen in public since what ’43?

    Hiding in the brightest light is usually best, as the KGB agent who is supposed to have smuggled Bormann to Beirut, wrote. And 18 months break from drugs would have likely helped Adolf, wherever he may have headed.

  20. DanaThomas on June 25, 2017 at 8:18 am

    Why now? On the level of specialist studies there is inequivocable evidence as to a Nazi “mass migration” to South America and more targeted moves elsewhere, from Egypt to Russia to Indonesia. The “Western” academic gatekeepers, while being unable to deny it, are trying to keep it out of the mainstream milieu. The resistance is even greater for the “Nazi International” meme, i.e. that modern day politics and economics are significantly influenced by old NS (National Socialist) policy and later generation personnel. And with an even higher wall thrown up regarding the two jewels in the NS crown: influence on “Western” espionage entities and on the evolution of so-called European unity. The latter two ambients are in big trouble now. So while the public is shown old-style NS memorabilia (sure to cause excitement among the shaved-head, swastika-tatooed crowd for whom history and economics are a closed book), there is little debate on the NS inspiration of current legislation on “security” and eugenics-related issues etc.
    Less likely in my view, though Dr. Farrell has suggested it, somebody may be planning a full-fledged NS movement to “save Europe” from the deliberately destructive policies under way. But who will give credit to these aspiring “saviours”?

    Just a little clarification; you write “the corporate controlled… media.” The media is owned by corporations, yes, but they’ve long ago farmed out control to the CIA.

    In fact, the CIA is the world’s biggest media conglomerate, and we have to start thinking of it as such. They don’t “do” intelligence gathering anymore, they create narratives. Much easier to just make stuff up and have the presstitutes sell it.

    As for Hitler’s magnifying glass, How old was he in the photo of him using it?
