This text in the article contradicts the headline: “Although the claims were written into an informal memo, the CIA dismissed it as a rumour.”

The Independent:

The CIA investigated claims that a man who said he was Adolf Hitler was living in a community of ex-Nazis in the 1950s in Colombia, it has been revealed.

Declassified documents indicate that although agents did not take the claim seriously, they did receive a photo of the man who had a striking resemblance to the German dictator.

A former SS soldier, Phillip Citroen, approached CIA agents in 1954 and said that a man claming to be Hitler was living in the town of Tunja.
