The allegation that 128-year-old man living in Argentina is Adolf Hitler

CLAIM: It is claimed that 128-year-old man living in Argentina is Adolf Hitler.


The story from news sites such as SabahHaberlerSon Dakika, OntravaWebtekno stated that it has been claimed that a 128-year-old man living in Salta State of Argentina is Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Germany.

The story claims that after Israel’s secret service stopped looking for former Nazi war criminals, an immigrant confessing to be Adolf Hitler showed up.

However, the claim is not true. The story first took place in World News Daily Report, a satirical news site a few weeks ago. World News Daily Report is known for their satirical and parody news stories. Homepage of the site bears this note:

All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people –  are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.

The claim that retired postman has over 1,300 illegitimate children, the claim that Rockefeller has undergone 6 heart, 3 kidney, and 2 lung transplants, and the claim that a rocket launched in space by Nazis in 1944 is expected to hit New York soon are fake titles from World News Daily Report, which were published by news sites as real news.

The elderly man seen in the photo, who is claimed to be Hitler is Francis Morris from Huddersfield, England. Morris celebrated his 100th birthday in 2014.

The photograph of the woman who is claimed to be the elderly man’s wife is a stock photo, and its tsource is  Shutterstock, a website selling photos and videos.
