Hunting Hitler challenges the the biggest story of World War II - the suicide of Adolf Hitler. Is it possible that Hitler faked his own death and lived out the rest of his life in Argentina? Author Jerome Corsi shares why it is not just plausible, but likely. With no physical evidence, corpse, photos, or even documentation to prove that Hitler committed suicide, there are far more questions than answers.

Tonight Deanna Spingola returns to the show.
With this show Deanna will walk us through a piece of WWII history that has been erased from the history books. The main stream narrative of the second World War majors exclusively on the Holocaust but never talks about Dwight Eisenhower’s Rhine Meadow Death Camps which claimed the lives of an estimated 1.5 million Germans. The running and condition of these enslavement camps was so deplorable that it is virtually incomprehensible to believe anyone, let alone a US general and later a US president, would have treated people in a way that can only be described as evil.
For many, much of what you will hear in this show will be a surprise and perhaps even shocking. I encourage everyone to listen with an open mind and as you do remember the words of Winston Churchill; “History is written by the victors.”

Kay Hughes “is a World War II enthusiast. Her father and contributor is veteran Harold E. Dwyer, a World War II B-17 combat pilot. Hughes has lived in Geneva, Nebraska, for over thirty years with her husband, Rick. A graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Hughes is a mother of three and a grandmother. Her life revolves around family, their farming operation, friends and community.” Kay Hughes is the author of Searching for Stanley: Unforgotten Hero of World War II.
According to the book description of Searching for Stanley: Unforgotten Hero of World War II, “World War II did not end in 1945-at least not for the Dwyer family of Hastings, Nebraska -Nayeli Urquiza and Dardis McNamee, The Vienna Review For decades, Kay Hughes was unaware of her family's unresolved mystery. After her grandparents, Harold W. and Ellen Dwyer, received a telegram stating that their son-2nd Lt. Stanley Dwyer-had become MIA over Austria on May 10, 1944, they began a relentless search. Left with only unanswered, nagging questions, they endured a lifelong private grief. Years later, one question would rekindle the search which, in turn, led Kay and her father, Harold E. Dwyer, Stanley's brother, on an intriguing journey across two continents and generations. In their quest to understand Stanley's fate, Kay and Harold developed friendships, visited with eyewitnesses, stood on hallowed ground, and observed the dedicated work of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command. In her poignant narrative, Kay details how clues salvaged in the charred rubble of a fi re revealed the essence of Stanley- almost forgotten World War II hero. Searching for Stanley is a timeless, real-life tale that illustrates one family's dedication to finding their beloved Stanley who, like thousands of other American patriots, made the ultimate sacrifice for his country.”
