"Has Taken Refuge On Island
ARGENTINE REPORT DENIED
NEW YORK, July 18,
The Brazzaville radio (French Equatorial Africa) quoted the South American newspaper La Critica as saying that Hitler and Eva Braun had taken refuge on Queen Maude Island in the Antarctic. The radio added that the pair were landed at a former submarine base for German Antarctic explorers by Üboat 530, which later surrendered in Argentina. The Foreign Minister of Argentina, Senor Ameehino, denied reports that Hitler and Eva Braun had landed from the German submarine U530 on the Argentine coast. He added that two months before the submarine- surrendered the police and Navy constantly patrolled the coastline. Nevertheless police vigilance was now extended even into Patagonia.
