History Logo

History will be premiering a new series examining the possibility that Adolf Hitler did not actually die in his bunker but instead escaped without being detected. The series Hunting Hitler is set to debut on November 10, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT with Emre Sahin, Sarah Wetherbee, Kelly McPherson, Jason Wolf, and Tim Healy executive producing.

Hunting Hitler consists of eight episodes that follow renowned investigators as they explore the possibility Hitler survived the fall of Nazi Germany by escaping the bunker and fleeing to South America.

Hunting Hitler Details:

In 2014, the FBI declassified over 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? Bob Baer, a 21-year CIA veteran and one of the most respected military intelligence minds in the world and premier war crimes investigator Dr. John Cencich lead a team of International military experts on the ultimate manhunt. 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. From uncovering a mysterious Nazi lair deep in the Argentinian jungle to mysterious plane wreckage in a Columbian marsh, and diving for evidence of a missing U-Boat that could have shuttled Hitler out of Europe as Germany collapsed, the team will stop at nothing to uncover the truth.
