this helps prove this theory.) He managed to arrive in Chile and then moved to Argentina and survived with the help of President Peron. World War II saw an additional 50 million civilians killed throughout the war and many countries blamed the German military for their deaths. Also, the pocketbook found by the Russians could have been fake or even a diversion. This apparently had scared Stumpfegger and Bormann and they ran away. Instead one man wrote that the remains were a clever fake, where a man from a concentration camp had been fitted for Martin Bormann? Gobbels had already decided to commit suicide but Bormann desperately wanted to survive. At approximately three in the morning, Axmann came across the bodies of Bormann and Stumpfegger.
The man knew the body had been that of Bormann because of the pocketbook found upon the body by the man? Since the dental records were recreated from memory their authenticity is questionable. The Nuremberg Trials also included a series of twelve trials held in the Palace of Justice following the conclusion of the initial trial. The fact that the men had both been on the bridge and in sight of Bormann and yet their stories contradict each other throws suspicion upon their testimonies. He was virtually unknown outside of the Party elite as he had worked in the shadows of Hitler. In relation to war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Nuremberg Trials would have a profound impact on the future of justice.
