According to newly-declassified CIA documents, the United States investigated whether Hitler was alive in Colombia in the mid-50s. An informant told agents that the Nazi leader was alive and living in the South American country under a new identity. The source, codenamed Cimelody-3, also revealed that a former SS soldier, Phillip Citroen, had been in contact with the Führer in the city of Tunja.

“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 storm-trooper adulation,” the document said.

Hitler, who would have been 66 at the time, was said to have worked as a shipping company employee before fleeing to Argentina.

In April 1945, Hitler shot himself and wife Eva Braun in their Berlin bunker. However, there have been many conspiracies that suggest he didn't commit suicide but rather escaped after the war. If Hitler were to have survived the war, fleeing to South America was likely as thousands of Nazis were housed in countries like Argentina after the end of WW2.
