Ratline is the documented history about the mechanisms by which thousands of other Nazi war criminals fled to the remotest parts of the globe - including quite possibly Adolf Hitler.
It is a story involving Soviet spies, Nazi priests, and a network of Catholic monasteries and safe houses known as the rat line. The name of one priest in particular, Monsignor Draganovic, was discovered by the author in a diary found in Indonesia. Why would this name turn up in a document written in a spidery German hand in a remote island in Indonesia?
As famed author Peter Levenda began his research, more information came to light: In December of 2009, it was revealed that the skull the Russians claimed was Hitler's - salvaged from the bunker in 1945 - was not that of Hitler! In 2010, files from the Office of Special Investigations of the Justice Department were declassified, revealing a history of American intelligence providing cover for Nazi war criminals.
The mystery deepened, and the author returned to his own roots hunting Nazis in North America, South America and Europe. He revisited old contacts, made some new ones, and gradually the explosive story was revealed: there is no forensic evidence to prove that Adolf Hitler died in the bunker in April 1945!



Peter Levenda is author of Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult. He has appeared numerous times in documentaries for The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, and in TNT's documentary "The Faces of Evil."
