Nazi hideout in Argentina (Original Version)

Was this a hideout for German Nazi officers? Deep in Argentina’s northern jungle, archaeologists have discovered the ruins of what may have originally been a Nazi safe heaven.
“It’s a defendable site, a protected site, an inaccessible site, where you can live peacefully in hiding. We believe we’ve found a refuge for the Nazi hierarchy.”

Researchers from the University of Buenos Aires decided to investigate the site located near the Paraguay border, where local legend has it that Adolf Hitler’s private secretary Martin Bormann once lived. The archaeologists have dismissed Bormann’s residency as untrue, saying DNA tests on a skeleton found in Berlin proved that he committed suicide there and never even arrived in South America.

Three separate buildings with notably different structures to those common in the area at the time, in addition to German coins and a piece of a German porcelain plate from the mid-twentieth century, were found amongst the ruins.
Investigators believe that while Bormann never lived there, it was in fact built as a potential refuge for high-ranking Nazis fleeing Germany at the end or near the end of World War II. They claim the remote border location made it an ideal refuge for those eluding authorities but explained that Nazis probably never ended up using the hideout, since they could live freely in Argentine towns and cities following the war.
