Some journalists claimed he’d fled to South America. According to some reports the Fuhrer and Eva Braun went into hiding in Argentina, protected by loyal Nazis. Another more far-fetched theory claimed that he went even further south in a U-boat. Hunting Hitler, History 2015-2018
Stalin’s reply was remarkable – he thought Hitler was still alive and living in Spain or Argentina. The British and US governments couldn’t confirm Hitler’s death either. ibid.

Argentina: for half a century a haven for Nazi war criminals. But then in an historic move the government opened its post-war archives to the world. The story led one of America’s most celebrated television news teams to the scoop of a lifetime, and to one of the last remaining high-ranking Nazis still at large: SS Captain Erich Priebke.

Buenos Aires, 1958: the Argentinean capital’s old-world charm and famed night-life had made it a magnet for European ex-patriots. It was also a magnet for Nazi war criminals. Fugitives like Dr Josef Mengele. The Angel of Death. Nazi Hunters e4: Josef Mengele

The Mossad agents are running a terrible personal risk in going on this Operation. If you were caught in Argentina in 1960 as a known foreign spy you wouldn’t have been executed but you would have been in prison for ages and ages. And of course your mission probably would have been denied back home as is the tradition of many spy stories. Guy Walters

I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina’s wealth and power in their hands. So Peron and the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go. Eva Peron

Well, as Hannah Arendt famously said, there can be a banal aspect to evil. In other words, it doesn’t present always. I mean, often what you're meeting is a very mediocre person. But nonetheless, you can get a sort of frisson of wickedness from them. And the best combination of those, I think, I describe him in the book, is/was General Jorge Rafael Videla of Argentina, who I met in the late 1970s when the death squad war was at its height, and his fellow citizens were disappearing off the street all the time. And he was, in some ways, extremely banal. I describe him as looking like a human toothbrush. He was a sort of starch, lean officer with a silly moustache, and a very stupid look to him, but a very fanatical glint as well. And, if I’d tell you why he’s now under house arrest in Argentina, you might get a sense of the horror I felt as I was asking him questions about all this. He’s in prison in Argentina for selling the children of the rape victims among the private prisoners, who he kept in a personal jail. And I don’t know if I’ve ever met anyone who’s done anything as sort of condescendingly horrible as that. Christopher Hitchens
For all its outwardly easy Latin charm, Buenos Aires was making me feel sick and upset, so I did take that trip to the great plains where the gaucho epics had been written, and I did manage to eat a couple of the famous asados: the Argentine barbecue fiesta (once summarized by Martin Amis’s John Self as ‘a sort of triple mixed grill swaddled in steaks’) with its slavish propitiation of the sizzling gods of cholesterol. Yet even this was spoiled for me: my hosts did their own slaughtering and the smell of drying blood from the abattoir became too much for some reason (I actually went ‘off’ steak for a good few years after this trip). Then from the intrepid Robert Cox of the Buenos Aires Herald I learned another jaunty fascist colloquialism: before the South Atlantic dumping method was adopted, the secret cremation of maimed and tortured bodies at the Navy School had been called an asado. In my youth I was quite often accused, and perhaps not unfairly, of being too politicized and of trying to import politics into all discussions. I would reply that it wasn’t my fault if politics kept on invading the private sphere and, in the case of Argentina at any rate, I think I was right. The miasma of the dictatorship pervaded absolutely everything, not excluding the aperitifs and the main course. Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir
