A new German TV documentary has revealed that Hitler was close to unleashing an atomic bomb on the world in the last days of World War II.
As we’ve previously reported, the FBI have it on record that Hitler may have fled to Argentina towards the end of World War 2.
According to Germany’s ZDF channel, Hitler had tested the bomb on Russian soldiers, shortly before the end of the war.
Yahoo News reports:
Many senior Nazi scientists went on to work in the U.S. military after the war – and records remain classified, according to the documentary makers.
The documentary’s claims focus on S.S. General Hans Kammler, who used 175,000 concentration camp inmates for slave labour in secret weapons factories.
The documentary claims to have uncovered documents from Russian military intelligence which suggest that the bomb had already been tested.
Soviet officers are said to have written, ‘The Germans are in the throes of making and testing a new secret weapon, which has a large destructive force.
‘The available bomb has a diameter of 1.5 meters. It consists of interlocking hollow balls.’
