SHARKHUNTERS International
2017 July "South American Expedition"

On the trail of the 3rd Reich in - Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay
     Mengele!     Müller!     Two women who "died" in a bunker in 1945

After being attacked by Montezuma's Revenge at Burger King, I spent a couple days in my room, getting my strength back.  It was not a lot of fun!

Feeling better I had a pleasant lunch with my friend Dr. MARIO MARISCOTTI, Member #7964.  He is the former Chief of the Argentine Atomic Energy Commission and we learned a lot from him about Heumul Island and the nuclear research laboratory built there by German scientists - two years after the war.  Sorry, my camera didn't get good photos of our lunch.

In the evening I visited my good friend Lt. Cdr. EDUARDO GERDING MD, Member #6896-LIFE and his charming wife Elsa - oh yes, and Benji too.

Next day it is time to head for the airport and start hunting.  Will be good to get out of Buenos Aires and head north.  It was 0º Celsius (32º Fahrenheit) here this morning!

 

     
 

I got to the airport, checked in and went to the snack bar - I still think this guy is a spy.  Waiting in the gate, there suddenly is a mass of people moving down the hall like a slow-moving tidal wave.  What is going on here?

     
 
     
It is one of the major soccer teams
and they will be on our plane.
  They were so mobbed by their fans people could
not walk past, so police moved them off to one side.
     
 
     

The white-haired guy is the coach.  As it turns out, this soccer team and their game this evening made a total mess out of traffic when we landed.

Upon landing, the team was the last to deplane.  I got my bag, hopped into a taxi and we headed for the border.  It was a beautiful and peaceful drive through this part of the Argentine National Forest but when we got to the next town - everything stopped!  Was there an earthquake?  Fire?  Flood?

No, they had blocked off streets, made one-way streets and generally made a mess of traffic for the evening soccer game!

 
     
 

We are headed north into Brazil but as we see from the photos below, traffic heading south is at a standstill for miles upon miles.  I know the taxi driver was not looking forward to his return trip back to his home after dropping me at my hotel in Brazil.

Soccer, or football as it is known everywhere but the USA, borders on a religion in South America.  Fans are fanatical in their love of the sport and of their favorite teams.

Okay - this is interesting, but we are not on the trail of any 3rd Reich people; not yet.  However..........

     
 
     
 
     

I checked in to my hotel, unpacked, showered and rested a bit then my friend Dr. FRANCO, Member #7954 picked me up and on the way to the home of Dra. CHRISTIANE, Member #8017 we stopped for snacks at the local supermarket.

After some excellent salami, cheese, red wine and great fellowship we began to lay out our plans for the coming days.  These two doctors have done an incredible amount of research on two ladies who were supposed to have died in May 1945 in a bunker in Berlin and of course, that research intertwines with Mengele, Bormann, "Gestapo" Müller and others including Adolf Hitler.

These coming days will rock the history as it has been taught for decades.  The hand-drawn map below will give us a start.  The photo of the doctors and the mystery woman, taken some years ago for their book, will start you thinking and we hope, wondering.
