Secret Nazi hideout believed found in remote Argentine jungle

Archaeologists are trying to determine whether ruined buildings in a remote nature reserve in Argentina were built as a hide-out for German Nazi officers, the BBC reports.

Researchers said they found German coins minted during World War Two in the ruins in northern Argentina.

The researchers said that the buildings were probably never used by fugitive Nazis, because they found they could live freely in Argentine towns.

Nazis who fled to Argentina included Adolf Eichmann and Erich Priebke.

The researchers from the University of Buenos Aires said they decided to investigate the buildings because of a local legend claiming they had been used as a hide-out for Martin Bormann, Adolf Hitler’s right-hand man.

The overgrown ruins are located in Teyu Cuare park near the town of San Ignacio in northern Misiones province.
