Hunting Hitler on History

Was Hitler never found? History premieres Hunting Hitler which is an 8 part series on finding Hitler

HISTORY®’s new eight-part series Hunting Hitler, follows a team of renowned investigators as they reopen the world’s most famous cold case in a definitive search to discover if one of history’s most notorious war criminals, Adolf Hitler, actually survived World War 2. 

In 2014, the FBI declassified more than 700 pages of secret documents suggesting the possibility that Adolf Hitler may have survived and fled to South America after the fall of Nazi Germany.

A recently unearthed memo from legendary FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover states, “American Army officials in Germany have not located Hitler’s body nor is there any reliable source that will say definitely that Hitler is dead.”

Is it conceivable that the world’s most wanted man pulled off history’s greatest disappearing act in hopes of possibly one day reclaiming the Nazi dream?

Throughout the series the experts - including international investigators, Nazi hunters, forensic scientists and journalists - will examine the compelling mystery surrounding one the most infamous deaths of the 20th Century.

With declassified worldwide intelligence providing a wealth of new clues and modern technology never before available, Baer has reopened this 70-year-old cold case to execute a global death claims investigation.

Internationally, Hunting Hitler will air on HISTORY across 180+ territories. A+E Networks handles worldwide distribution for Hunting Hitler and will premiere on DStv (186) on Thursday 5 November at 20:30 CAT.
