Hunting Hitler is a History Channel television series based on the popular conspiracy theory that Adolf Hitler escaped from his bunker in Berlin at the end of World War II and escaped, possibly to South America where many other Nazi’s fled. The FBI declassified documents from 1947 which showed that the organization was concerned about the lack of a body after Hitler’s reported death. There was some criticism after the broadcast of the first season in 2015 that the series was feeding America’s unhealthy obsession with both Hitler and conspiracy theories.
The first series proved popular and it returned for a second season beginning in 2016 (see: Hunting Hitler: Season 2), and this third season was aired in 2018.
