Martin Bormann 

a New Body of Evidence.


Hitler’s right hand man and chancellor, the man that controlled all of Nazi Germany’s appropriated loot, was tried in absentia in October 1946 at the Nuremberg trials. Found guilty of war crimes and sentenced to death by hanging, Bormann evaded the noose due to his mysterious disappearance.

Two Nazi witnesses at the Nuremberg trials testified to the fact that they had seen Bormann and fellow Nazi, Dr Ludwig Stumpfegger dead, in the vicinity of the Weidendamm Bridge and the Lehrter train station in Berlin, in the early hours of May 2nd 1945, only hours after fleeing the bunker – where Hitler had supposedly put a bullet through his brain. One witness going as far as to say that he had even seen Bormann’s dead ”moonlit face”. 


From 1945 the hunt for Martin Bormann was on. During the confusion of those early post war years, the West German government kept the heat up, but UKUSA’s ‘hunt’ was only, If anything, lukewarm. A concentrated search effort had been made in 1945 around the site , of the supposed ‘moonlit’ scenario of Bormann and Stumpfegger, with who he was last seen alive. With the advantage of hordes of allied troops on the ground to co-ordinate a thorough search near and around the Lehrter station in Berlin, no stone was left unturned. The same was done independently by a Russian recon group, after Lieutenant General Konstantin Telegin, of the Soviet 5th Shock Army was delivered of a diary said to be of Bormann’s, found near the same site.


     When anyone mentions the name Martin Bormann most baby-boomers will know who he was, they will also be quick to tell you that even though there was a wild goose chase across the globe to find him, he certainly died in 1945, proved they say, by the finding of his bones in Berlin in 1972 


the site near the Lehrter station in Berlin - where the remains of Stumpegger and Bormann were found in 1972

In those early post war years, it was not yet a ‘cold case’, with memories still fresh and the ground still soft. Any such corpses although decomposed, would have certainly been on, or near the surface and easily identifiable with the minimum of forensics; but not as much as a scrap of flesh was found of either man. At least they had some disputable charred remains of Hitler, but the bodies of Bormann and Stumpfegger had literally ‘vanished’ into thin air, along with the Nazi loot.

But after construction workers came across human remains near the Lehrter station in Berlin in 1972, the world’s press gathered to hear if this was indeed Bormann. Bormann’s Nazi dentist Dr Hugo Blaschke was called and he recalled from memory his former patient’s dental physiology and gave testimony that they were one and the same, the case was then closed.

Contrary to the survival story being told by those considered ‘’crazy’’ conspiracy theorists, there are many very qualified and well versed investigators and former intelligence agents that tell us the story we teach our children at school is just that, a story.

After all, it is a fact that numerous Nazi officers who were participant in the brutal slavery of concentration camp prisoners were snapped up by the USA after the war, many of whom were made post WWII hero’s in the American scientific community. Nazi monster Klaus Barbie, infamously known as the ''Butcher of Lyon'' due to his highly effective torture techniques and Reinhard Gehlen, the former head of nazi intelligence were both secretly recruited to work for the CIA  with total disregard to the heavy sentences served on the two at the Nuremberg Trials. If this is has been proven as fact, why is is so far fetched to believe that the allies could rescue the man with the money?


Is is really so hard to accept the possibility that Nazi Germany's penpushing 'Banker' with access to all of Nazi Germany's wealth scattered around the globe escaped, possibly with the help of British intelligence which was desperately short of cash?

Reinhard Gehlen former Nazi, Cold war spymaster and later a CIA recruit and head of the West German intelligence network, also claimed that Bormann escaped to South America and died in Paraguay.

But probably the most disturbing work comes from Ladislas Farago. In 1974, Farago a brilliant military historian, WWII war correspondent and former civilian naval    intelligence officer, published  Aftermath: Martin  Bormann and the Fourth Reich. Farago, after a long and painstaking investigation on the ground in South America,  much of which was spent accessing classified Argentine intelligence documents, presented his evidence including copies of said documents in his book. Not only did Farago examine and get the classified documents he accessed authenticated, he called a team to join him in Buenos  Aires to witness and document the authentication of such.


   The formidable 1972 Buenos Aires team included four highly distinquished international attorneys. Former intelligence operative and practicing new York attorney  Joel Weinberg, Dr. Silvio Frondizi, the brother and former legal aid to Argentine President Arturo Frondizi, Dr. Guillermo Macia Ray and Dr. Horacio A. Perillo . They were also joined by Stewart Steven, who at the time was the highly respected  Foreign Editor of  London's Daily Express. Steven was not just there as a witness, but also a participant in the document analysis.

Farrago and his team's conclusion, was that Martin Bormann certainly escaped Europe in 1945 with the help of the allies and went on to South America where he survived for many years, many of which in Argentina.



Highly respected British newspaper man Stewart Steven, who was part of Farago's team, was later sacked as Foreign Editor from London's ''Daily Express'' for publishing an article suggesting the offical 1998 investigation report by the West German prosecutor's version of events was a ''Whitewash'' 

Even though Farrago and his team were highly qualified to make an intelligent and thorough analysis and investigation on the documents made available to them, Farago’s publication was ignored and serious attempts were made to discredit him and the other members of the team.

A precedence had been set - when it came to stating or even suggesting

Martin Bormann had survived post 1945, even experts like Farago was also the world’s leading expert on propaganda and clandestine psychological forms of espionage and warfare, was not safe from ridicule and criticism.

Ladislas Farago  who, was also the world’s leading expert on propaganda and clandestine psychological forms of espionage, a military historian and reputed journalist, published a number of best-selling books on history and espionage, especially concerning the World War II era.

He was also the author of many brilliant books including;

Patton: Ordeal and Triumph, the biography of General George Patton that formed the basis for the film "Patton" and wrote The Broken Seal, one of the books which formed the basis for the movie ''Tora! Tora! Tora!''.
Yet even Farago was not safe from ridicule and criticism - when stating Bormann had certainly survived post 1945.


“History often has a difficult time catching up to the events it records.” 
― Ladislas Farago, 

But not everyone ignored Farago’s book. The content and evidence produced by Farago was so compelling, that it attracted the attention of German born American

Dr. Robert M. W. Kempner, a former Nuremburg trial attorney - who decided to reopen the Bormann investigation, based on Ladislas Farago’s documentary evidence of  Martin Bormann's survival.  

''Dead men do not go to the dentist''

                                                        Laurence de Mello

Paul Manning, author, former war correspondent and counter intelligence expert,claims along with others that Bormann certainly escaped.

When Manning tried to publish his extensively researched 1981 book

Martin Bormann Nazi in Exile’ he received dire threats. After finally getting a renegade publisher to agree to publish his work, within two weeks the publisher had his legs broken and Manning’s son was mysteriously murdered.

Hugh Thomas, former surgeon and forensic expert of international repute and author of the 1995 book Doppelgängers in which he wrote extensively about the forensics investigation and puts forward a solid scientific argument which supports the view that Bormann died later than 1945.

Thomas is no stranger to legitimate forensic research and According to Jonathan Glancey of The Guardian, Thomas’s ’’scalpel-sharp eye for detail’’and second investigative work  Hess: A Tale of Two Murders  ‘’precipitated a six-month Scotland Yard inquiry that saw its report immediately suppressed."


Thomas confirms that the original Bormann medical reports in 1972 released only some

and not all the information found under the microscope. While it is true the dentistry of the skull found was identified as Bormann, they failed to reveal to the public that there was dentistry performed in the skull, which could only have been done in the 1950’s due to the technology used.


A man that died in 1945 is not going to go to the dentist in 1950. Also, the skull ‘’found’’ in Berlin, was encased in a red clay type earth, exotic to Germany but local to a place in Paraguay, the very place that many investigators have traced Bormann to in his last years. Those last year’s being as late as 1969.




In fact Manning’s story is very much in line with the former British Intel officer and author of OPJB. Christopher Creighton states that Bormann escaped, as does Former WWII British army General and war crimes investigator, Ian Bell.

Bell can be seen on YouTube telling us that he saw Bormann being taken to a ship in Genoa and when he radioed back to his command, he was told to follow but ‘’do not apprehend’’. 

 It can not be ignored that there were those, that were determined to keep the 1945 Bormann  death myth in force.


But since Manning, Farago and Thomas, the last two decades have seen a new generation of investigators, that have picked up on the unfinished case, to prove what many people know, but not dare to discuss.  


Recent research reveals that a classified Federal Police archive in Argentina shows that the FBI were sending agents to Argentina to follow the Bormann case and the money trails well into the 1980’s. Courageous new witnesses have come forward since 2010, with compelling evidence which cannot be ignored. This new evidence may very well lead to an undisputable revelation, that not only did Bormann  escape, but he lived for many years in South America with the protection of the allies.

Important New Witness

Commissioner Generale Jorge Silvio Colotto 

 - former military ADC to Argentine General Juan Peron.


A high ranking internationally decorated military and federal police commissioner, who had been the ADC to 7 Argentine presidents, a close personal friend of Chilean President Pinochet and was the sub chief of the tough Argentine Federal secret police has spoken out about Martin Bormann in Buenos aires post 1945..

The Commissioner who was prominently involved in the dismantling of the Argentine narcotics traffic in the 1990’s, gave his taped testimony to Goldeneye Films in 2010.


The interview given on the premise that it could only be published after his death, in order to protect his family, contains starling information that he witnessed a meeting between President Juan Peron and Martin Bormann in 1952 and met Bormann frequently in Buenos Aires between late 1952 till the end of 1953. 


He also testifies that on the instructions of Peron, he organised the personal security

for Bormann and escorted him to various meetings in Argentina.

Commissioner Colotto also stated that Martin Bormann had been installed in a famous luxury hotel in Buenos Aires from late 1952 through 1953, which was owned by Germans.


The ADC testifies that he was sent on a weekly basis to collect the Bormann bill from the concierge to take directly to Peron, who paid the bill from his personal accounts.

This man asked for nothing in exchange for his testimony, all he requested was that the truth be finally known. Commissioner Jorge Colotto died in 2012 and part of his testimony was made available for publication in 2016.

On the publication of the

 1998 Bormann DNA report, and statements given to the media, London’s ‘Daily Express’ newspaper called the Bormann report a ‘’whitewash’’ perpetrated by the Brandt government. Later Stewart Steven the very experienced foreign editor of the Daily Express was sacked for publishing the ‘’whitewash’’ article.

If we now know, that leading war criminals such as Klaus Barbie and Reinhard Gelen were recruited and employed by the C.I.A post WWII,

It was not until 1998 that due to modern science technology, the remains were subjected to a DNA forensic study by the West German prosecutor. The reason for this new 1998 investigation was that in 1996 Christopher Creighton, aka John Ainsworth-Davis a former British Naval Intelligence agent and member of the covert British group C.O.P.P (Combined Operations Pilotage Parties) had published a book, OPJB (Operation James Bond). In the book, Creighton using a pseudonym, claims that along with Ian Fleming, he was instructed by Winston Churchill and Desmond Morton the head of Secret British intelligence section V, to rescue Martin Bormann from a burning Berlin in May 1945. The book passed off as a novel, to protect Creighton from potential serious consequences due to breach of the Official Secrets Act – unsettled the German government to the extent that a thorough forensics and DNA investigation was carried out on the remains. The forensic results came back after the legal medical team matched blood from a maternal Bormann relative, the match was positive.

Goldeneye's primary source witness to Martin Bormann post 1945 survival passes CIA truth test.

Goldeneye 2010 interview with Comissioner Jorge Silvio Colotto is featured on A@E Hunting Hitler series-

video clip may be seen here  

Another recent witness, with ties to the FBI and C.I.A, is a former Naval Captain who was in charge of the security for the port of Buenos Aires. He told Goldeneye that not only was it common knowledge, but it is documented in the classified Argentine Federal Police archives, that Bormann was in Argentina in the 50’s and that the CIA were in Argentina keeping tabs on Bormann as late as 1967.

Captain Monasterio published the very first book which speaks of Hitlers' survival post 1945 -

Operation Patagonia - Hitler Murio en la Argentina He wrote it under the pseudonym Jeff Kristenssen in 1987.

Goldeneye are currently working closely with Captain Monasterio with regards to the Martin Bormann investigation.

Goldeneye Publishing will be also working on Kristenssen's English translation and publishing of  Operation Patagonia - Hitler Murio en la Argentina





Goldeneye witness testimony put under CIA tech examination on History Channel

Come in Commander James Bond.

The former British naval agent and Spy, author Christopher Creighton, who penned the controversioal 1996 book  OPJB Operation James Bond ,writes that he was instructed by Lord Louis Mountbatten and Winston Churchill to reveal the truth of all the covert ops in which he was participant, 25 years after the death of both.

Documents have been seen which were written to Creighton from Lord Louis Mountbatten which prove Creighton was certainly working for British Naval intelligence at the highest level, which puts in grave doubt spy writer Nigel West’s claims that Creighton is a ‘’charlatan’’.

There are also letters from James Bond author Ian Fleming to Creighton which testify to OPJB, the covert operation that removed Bormann from Berlin as being fact and that he based his James Bond Character on Creighton’s operations. How did Fleming know? Because according to verified letters from Fleming to Creighton, Fleming was part of the operation while he

was a Royal Naval commander under the command of Desmond Mortonfor the British secret service section V.

Potential New Leads

In 2007 we were introduced to a lady whose name cannot be revealed at this time,

with a story that she had probably been born in a German clinic in Brazil an adopted by a prominent government affiliated family in the Dominican Republic.

This five foot two, blonde, green eyed lady was found to be a well balanced, well educated, discreet and an upstanding and trustworthy member of her community, neither publicity seeking nor economically driven.


Her deceased adoptive father had been a senior naval officer for the Santa Dominican republican dictator Trujillo.

She claims her adoptive father was entrusted with her in 1953 the year of her birth, after he was in Brazil negotiating arms deals between the Santa Dominican Republic government and the German arms factories in the Brazilian jungle.


In 1984 she contacted the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, after her adoptive father revealed on his death bed that she was the daughter of ‘’one of Germany’s three greatest men’’. Extremely distressed at this death bed revelation, she with her Jewish American attorney, approached the Simon Wiesenthal Centre for help. Within weeks her attorney was anonymously threatened with his life. He immediately dropped her representation after the SWC  told him, more than just abruptly, that they were not able to help and would not investigate due to ‘’lack of funds’’. An unusual response from a wealthy organisation that’s main objective has been to track down Nazi war criminals.

Even Simon Wiesenthal himself believed  that Bormann escaped and was frequently outspoken against the official version. In 1966 he said


"he is alive and living on the Chile Argentine border using the name Ricardo Bauer"


                             Simon Wesienthal


It was only after the 1972 finding of the remains in Berlin, that Wesienthal gave up the search. 

It is shocking and detrimental to Wiesenthal’s memory, that those that now head the very organisation founded in his name, ridicule others that believe what Wiesenthal believed, Martin Bormann escaped.


Goldeneye Films are currently seeking genuine close Martin Bormann blood relatives.


If this woman does have Bormann DNA and being born in a German clinic in Brazil in 1953, it will once and for all put to bed the mystery and will vindicate all those that have sacrificed much to reveal what they believed to be the truth. Could that truth be that Martin Bormann escaped and went on to manage the vast funds accumulated by Nazi Germany with the help of Britain and the USA?



Since 1972, historians and academics have spun their tales and told the world that Bormann certainly died near the Lehrter station Berlin, during the early hours of May 2 1945. This aural history is based on no more than unreliable witnesses, two of which were Nazi’s and a DNA match to a skeleton found in 1972. DNA may prove that the remains are those of Bormann, but there is more evidence to prove he was alive for at least 25 years after 1945. In which time he could have managed the vast Nazi wealth, including cash, gold, stocks, bonds, shares and priceless works of art. After all,  it is rather surprising that with all the modern banking forensics available to date, not one single intelligence agency or government claims that the vast,  booty has been found, or has it? Yet it has been officially written, printed, signed sealed and delivered, into our children's history lessons, that Martin Bormann died in 1945 de-facto, the loot disappeared and anyone that tells you different is a ‘conspiracy theorist’.


Proving once and for all with new testimony, documentation and forensic evidence and data, that Hitler’s money handler, Martin Bormann survived, will redeem many a damaged reputation and justifiably, cause many a red face within the high end academic community.

But more importantly, it will raise many complicated and embarrassing questions to those agencies and governments which have knowingly perpetrated the Bormann death myth for the past 70 years.
