Download PDF for this date

Martin Bormann, deputy to Adolf Hitler, and Dr. Josef Mengele, the notorious Aus chwitz death camp “selection doctor, ” escaped from Argentina to Egypt as soon as word had spread that Adolf Eichmann had been nabbed by Israelis at Buenos Aires over a year ago, the newspaper Ultima Hora reported here today.

According to Ultima Hora, both leading ex-Nazis, widely being hunted, were aided in their escapes by an underground Nazi organization. As a ruse, the newspaper states, the underground Nazis spread a report that Bormann and Mengele were hiding in Brazil.
