A new attempt to keep alive the Hitler legend in Germany has been made by the Frankfurt magazine “Tempo der Welt” which in its latest issue publishes an alleged interview with Martin Bormann, Hitler lieutenant who is believed to have perished with the Nazi leader in a Berlin bunker in 1945.

The magazine says that Bormann is alive and living in Spanish Morocco “at the headquarters of a neo-fascist underground movement.” The periodical also asserts that Hitler is alive and hiding in a Tibetan monastery.

The press department of Allied High Commission for Germany has requested that American High Commissioner John J. McCloy take action against the publication which is considered here to be fascist and anti-Semitic in character.
