Film: KLM aided Nazi escapes

A Dutch television documentary claims that KLM Airlines helped Nazis escape to Argentina after World War II.Documentary producers told Reuters they have documents proving their accusation, though KLM says its own checks have not revealed such evidence.The former Dutch state airline, now part of Air France, said it likely will seek an independent investigation into the matter, Reuters reported.The Dutch program, which aired last week on network television, said KLM helped Nazis without legal travel papers get to Argentina via Switzerland. As evidence the program cited documents that it says came from U.S., Swiss, Argentine and Dutch archives.
