Exploring past and present, this program examines a detailed, scholarly working hypothesis by authors Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams concerning the possible escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key players in the realization of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the operation facilitating Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Martin Bormann for the Third Reich. Centered on a quid pro quo arrangement, the authors hypothesize that Aktion Feurland involved the transfer of Nazi technology to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paperclip) and the saving of priceless works of art from destruction. The ‘discovery” of a huge cache of Nazi-looted art in Munich in late 2013 is examined against the background of this alleged quid pro quo.
