JFK files show CIA informed Hitler was living in Colombia

NZ Herald | 1 Nov 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 Fifties, 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”.
