Bormann Files
Are Released

Buenos Aires (JTA) — Nazi
war criminal Martin Bor-
mann died in Paraguay in
1959, according to files of the
Paraguayan police that were
recently discovered and
made public.
The finding, if accurate,
challenges a widespread
belief that Mr.Bormann,
who was one of Adolf
Hitler's top aides, committed
suicide in Berlin in 1945.
A report in the police files
said Mr. Bormann succumb-
ed to stomach cancer in
Hohenau, an insular Ger-
man-speaking colony 220
miles south of Asuncion, the
Paraguayan capital.
The report, dated Aug. 24,
1961, was prepared by
security personnel from
what was then the dreaded
Division of Technical Affairs
of the Paraguayan Interior
Ministry during the dic-
tatorship of Alfredo
Stroessner.
One source in the world
Jewish community who ask-
ed not to be identified said
that the information does
not "pan out with what we
do know," that Mr. Borman
died in Berlin at the end of
the war.
But in New York, Mark
Weitzman, associate director
of educational outreach for
Simon Wiesenthal Center,
said it was "not uncommon
for Nazis to stage their own
deaths."
"And if they could find
someone who resembled
Bormann, that would take
some of the heat off them if
they were still alive."
In Asuncion, Judge Luis
Benitez Riera verified the
document's authenticity and
reminded journalists that
those files are now open to
the public.
Paraguay was a well-
known haven for Nazis after
World War II.
Edward Roschmann,
known as the "butcher of
Riga," died in Asuncion in
1977. And Josef Mengele,
dubbed the "angel of death"
at Auschwitz, is believed to
have lived in Paraguay
before he went to Brazil,
where he died in 1979 of a
stroke while swimming.
The police report released
in Asuncion says that Mr.
Mengele, who was a medical
doctor, traveled to Paraguay
at the end of 1958 to try to
cure Mr: Bormann of his
cancer.
According to the report,
Mr. Bormann lies buried in
an unmarked grave in a
cemetery in Ita.
