After the end of World War II, the United Nations Commission for the Investigation of War Crimes Matters has compiled a register containing the names of nearly one million 120 thousand. criminals and 800 thousand. persons suspected of war crimes. Only a fraction of the number of people heard any complaints. British journalist Guy Walters in the book "Chasing evil" reports that anyone but the Israelis, especially not keen on prosecuting criminals. Especially the Germans. Cites as evidence the information that German intelligence knew about this exactly where Adolf Eichmann already resides in 1952., Ie eight years before his apprehension. It passed into the hands of justice until 1960 and then only because the Mossad took matters into his own hands.
The coverage of Nazi criminals participated not only Argentina, but the United States ( "Operation Paperclip"), which depended on attracting scientists for their research, as well as the Vatican, in whose ranks many priests saw the Nazis defense against Bolshevism.
It's not everything. Many of the officers of the Wehrmacht occupied high positions not only in reviving the Bundeswehr, but also in the East German National People's Army (almost every other officer was trained by the Abwehr). As reported by Norbert Frei in his book "The policy towards the past", as the third member of the cabinet of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer was a member of the Nazi party. Even worse was the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1952. Functions in high positions served there more than former Nazis in the days of the Nazi Party members Ribbentrop. There was better with the German Federal Intelligence Service, which was responsible for the formation of post-war Gehlenowi Reinhard, former General Intelligence Nazi. No settlement criminals frequented compromising. People from the past did not have nothing to fear, provided it is not too much paraded.
Does this mean that behind all this was the mysterious Odessa? Not completely. Although many historians are convinced of its existence, in fact, lack of convincing evidence to confirm this fact.
Let's start with the fact that countries such as Argentina or the United States does not need to be bribed to host a precious refugees from the Third Reich. The results of research by German specialists, although criminal, was a bargaining chip in itself. Perón wanted to make their country strong and militarized state, and fled z Niemiec, scientists, doctors, soldiers and engineers were eligible for this purpose perfectly. A complex network of international connections that allowed the end of the war, leaving hundreds of Nazis to Argentina, Uki Goñi perfectly described in the book "The Real Odessa", which recently appeared on the Polish market.
Americans also sought allies in the nascent conflict with the Soviet Union. Just to mention that Wernher von Braun, who worked for Hitler's rockets V-1 and V-2 helped create NASA rocket, which was the first man on the moon, and Hubertus Strughold, conducting human experiments in Dachau, was called the father of the American space medicine.
At a joint account
It can not be ruled out that the end of the war, Himmler actually strive to achieve the plan of Odessa, doubtful, however, that managed to create an organization with such a wide influence extended camera, as shown even Forsyth. The document recently produced by the station ZDF suggests that Odessa, though she had the ambition has never been a unified structure and in fact consisted of dozens of more or less formal organization that helped the SS. He contributed to the Soviet propaganda. In short, any activity aimed at helping the Nazis attributed to the mythical Odessa.
As for the fact that there were other organizations helping criminals, no doubt. Take although German Stille Hilfe (Silent Help), founded in 1946. By a group of senior SS officers and right-wing clerics. At its head stood the Princess Helena Elisabeth von Isenburg, the wife of a Nazi scientist Wilhelm Prinz von Isenburg. This is the organization closest to Odessa today. Its aim was to provide assistance to all who przysłużyli the Third Reich, and they had trouble after the end of hostilities.
In the early years of the organization it was secret, it registered only in 1951. Because it allowed to conduct fundraising. Officially, the "prisoners of war and internees." Members wrote letters and petitions in defense of veterans. In later years they dealt with the financing of the legal costs, hiring an attorney and all the legal bills. Stille Hilfe took care of the veterans who left the prison walls, helped settle in the old age home, ensure the maintenance and medical care.
Organization actively supported Gudrun Burwitz, the daughter of Heinrich Himmler, who after the war founded - Wiking-Jugend (Viking Youth), which is a direct continuation of the Hitler Youth. In the years 1951-1992 worked as the organization HIAG (Mutual Aid Association of Former Members of the Waffen-SS), whose aim was to help veterans activities for their rehabilitation and the fight for social benefits. All similar initiatives only podgrzewały myth of Odessa.
