How the CIA found Hitler alive in Colombia in 1954!

on . Posted in Articles of Interest

WASHINGTON (PNN) - November 1, 2017 - The CIA was told about a man claiming to be Adolf Hitler who lived in Colombia among a community of ex-Nazis during the 1950s, declassified documents reveal.

Agents did not take the claim made by a former SS soldier seriously, however the station chief in Caracas did forward the claims to superiors complete with a photo.

The files show that a man named Phillip Citroen approached agents in 1954 to say he had met a man claiming to be Hitler and living in the town of Tunja, north of Bogota.

By the time agents took any action the man claiming to be the Fuhrer - who was called Adolf Schuttlemayer - had apparently fled to Argentina. However the CIA was clearly extremely skeptical of the claims and recommended the matter be dropped.

The claims have resurfaced now after Colombian journalist Jose Cardenas tweeted the files from the CIA archive that were declassified in the 1990s.

Citroen claims to have visited the town while working for a railroad company where he was introduced to a man “who strongly resembled and claimed to be Hitler.”

The document says, “Citroen claimed to have met this individual at a place called 'Residencies Coloniales' which is, according to the source, overly populated with former German Nazis. According to Citroen, the Germans residing in Tunja follow this alleged Adolf Hitler with an idolatry of the Nazi past, addressing him as Elder Fuhrer and affording him the Nazi Salute and stormtrooper adulation.”

Citroen even showed agents a photograph of himself sitting next to a man that bears a strong resemblance to the Nazi dictator in an attempt to prove his story.

Agents wrote the story into an informal memo, the documents show, but largely dismissed it as a fanciful rumor.

But in 1955 a second man, identified only by his code name of Cimelody-3, approached agents with the same story, which he said Citroen related to his friend.

Cimelody said Citroen, who by that time was living in Venezuela, had claimed to be in contact with “Hitler” around once a month on his regular visits to Colombia while working for the KNSM Royal Dutch Shipping Company.

Cimelody also provided agents with a photograph purporting to show Citroen with Hitler, who was named on the back of the image as Adolf Schuttlemayer.

According to Cimelody, Adolf left Colombia in January 1955 for Argentina, though he does not say exactly where.
