10. Hitler Escaped and Died in Spain
There are already many claims that Hitler escaped to Spain in a plane. Hitler escaped with General Franco, who took him in. According to Senor Stefan Aceituna (General Franco’s driver), he was sent to meet a plane arriving in Madrid airport on the night of April 30, 1945. A different angle of the story is a man living in Venezuela claim that Hitler is buried in Spain. The man who claims that Hitler is buried in Spain is a Spanish sculptor, composer, writer, and historian. According to the man Hitler never committed suicide but died and buried in a cemetery in Galicia, northwest Spain.
9. Hitler Escaped to an Arctic or Antarctica base?
There are reports that Antarctica was a Nazi base before World War II, but the South Pole also has locations that are known to be secret bases of the Nazis. But, while tales of a secret Nazi base in Antarctica may appear plausible to some, the idea that a warm water location at the South Pole has remained undiscovered and no one has escaped or deserted the place in more than 50 years stretched belief to the breaking point in years past. But with the new revelations of 60-70 degree temperature water, magnetic anomalies suggesting the possibility of a hidden city or base and the obvious back out taking place concerning current events at the pole, the idea of a secret base is no longer so far-fetched.
There are also reports that Nazis had a secret base in the North Pole or the Arctic region. Nazis used this secret base to test their flying saucers. During the 1940s, the Nazi government were successful enough to create three flying saucer prototype models, namely Feuerball (“Fireball”), Feuerflaggen (“Fire Flag”), and Feuerfazzen (“Fire Go”).
These pieces of evidence support the point that Hitler might have escaped to an Arctic or Antarctica base.
8. Hitler died of Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is the main reason behind the downfall of Hitler claims few reports. The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include trembling of arms and legs, stiffness in muscles and slowness of movement. Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder that affects the nervous system. It affects the patient slowly and can ultimately lead to death due to secondary complications from the disease. Hitler is known to have suffered the disease for 10 years. Dr. Tom Hutton, a neurologist said Hitler was suffering physical and mental symptoms of the disease, but his aides kept it secret. The declining health of the dictator might have led to his downfall and also his death. This is again one of the conspiracy theory that is still unproven.
7. Hitler had Secretly Escaped to Moon
The theme of the Nazis escaping into the outer space was even evident in the book Rocket Ship Galileo by Robert A. Heinlein. The book was published two years after World War II, which says that the Nazis colonized the moon. Nazi had a secret moon base and Hitler was sent to the moon using rocket technologies. According to a few conspiracy theories from the book, after World War II, Hitler not only escaped his country but escaped from the planet and lived in an underground lunar base.
6. Hitler Escaped to Outer-space with Aliens
An Iranian news agency claims that the aliens helped Hitler and the Nazis. The news agency Fars News Agency alleges that The Nazis were controlled by Aliens before and now they are controlling the U.S Government with the alien base in Nevada. Even before World War II, Edgar Rice Burroughs satirized the Nazis by placing a fascist political faction called “Zanis” on the planet Venus in Carson of Venus, published in serialized form in 1938.
5. Hitler Buried in Kashmir

There are proofs from Nazi experts that Hitler lived till the 1960s. This is one of the most famous conspiracy theories on the death of Adolf Hitler.
3. Alleged escape to Argentina
A book called as Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler by two British authors Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams proposes that Hitler and his wife Braun escaped from Berlin to Argentina and they didn’t commit suicide. According to the book, Hitler crossed Andes Mountain before arriving in Argentina. Until the early 1960s, Hitler was in hiding at Hacienda San Ramón. But according to historians, this theory is just considered as another conspiracy theory of Adolf Hitler’s death and has no place in historical research. The couple then died of old age in Argentina. Since many Nazis escaped to South American nations, which tends to support the fact that Hitler did the same. Adolf Hitler’s secret hideouts have been found in South America. Many Nazi coins have been found in Adolf Hitler’s secret hideouts in South America.
2. Hitler Escaped Berlin Bunker and Died in South America at the Age of 95
A new book claims with pictures that Hitler escaped his underground Berlin bunker and died in South America in 1984 at the age of 95. Hitler is believed to have escaped Germany and lived in a small town near Brazil and border of Bolivia with his girlfriend Cutinga. Cutinga was a black woman with whom Hitler is believed to have had a relationship. The author also believes that Hitler went to Brazil in search of hidden treasures.

The book is authored by Simoni Renee Guerreiro Dias.
1 Hitler Commits Suicide by Hitting Rounds of Bullets in his Berlin Bunker
This is the actual story of Hitler’s death. On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler reportedly committed suicide by hitting rounds of bullets in his underground bunker. Hitler killed himself along with his wife Eva who took cyanide to die. The couple lived around 40 hours together in the bunker before taking their lives. As per prior instructions from Hitler, the bodies of Hitler and his wife were set alight with petrol outside the bunker in Reich Chancellery garden. The burnt remains are archived in the Soviet archives until 1970 after which the ashes were scattered, exhumed and cremated multiple times.
A study conducted in 2009 by American researchers has revealed that the 4-inch bullet-punctured skull is not of Hitler’s but a woman’s skull in her 40s. There are also many different variations of Hitler’s death, such as death by taking cyanide, by taking poison and so on. There is no proper full-proof evidence that Hitler was burned outside the Reich Chancellery garden.
