Was there really a shadowy Nazi escape organisation called the 'Odessa'?
Nice article. But guy, you emailed me that you were sending me a free signed book, and it never came :-(
Truth is almost more interesting than fiction.
Someone needs to write a book (although I think an Italian may have done so on Merano and the Alto Adige (or Sud Tyrol as you may prefer); the place was rife with lovely people. Or at least pull all the information about the Merano/Rome/Genova connections.
Most organisations of former SS men were more interested in lobbying the West German government to pay them military pensions, than smuggle them to South America. The fact that many of the Nazis who did make it abroad lived in relative poverty, would also seem to mitigate against the existence of a secret organisation (of former SS men) bankrolling them.
