THE ODESSA FILE examines the persistent rumors and tempting evidence that points to the existence of a secretive organization that masterminded the escape of Nazi war criminals and perpetuated Nazi ideals the world over. Nazi hunters tell of encounters that led them to believe such a network not only existed, but still protects former war criminals to this day. Explore the link between the Perons of Argentina and the ex-Nazi colonel Otto Skorenzy, who many suspect was the mastermind behind Odessa. And see why the revelations surrounding the Swiss banks' handling of Nazi money may hold the vital clues that finally reveal the truth about the shadowy organization.
Subject of the Frederick Forsyth novel THE ODESSA FILE, Odessa was a covert Nazi organization created to help high-ranking SS officials escape to Latin American countries to evade post-war persecution. This History Channel program delves into the history of the shadowy Odessa network, including its connections to Swiss banks and the Peron family of Argentina.
Explore the mysterious underground network that spirited high-ranking Nazis from the ruins of World War II, and which some suspect exists to this day.
