The "Hitler got away" story is fascinating mostly because of it's longevity. I suspect that it's a sort of story that is told simply because it WAS told, history as an Ouroboros (that snake eating its tail symbol). I may have said this a while back but "who cares if Hitler got away?" What was an interesting idea in the '60s or '70s is a non starter today. The man would be over 130 years old, certainly dead in his South American or South Asian hide-away if he actually made it out of Berlin. In the past 76 years he has had no further impact on history. In his case death is appropriate cosmic justice, but so is becoming inconsequential. Thank god but "nazi" has mostly become an empty epithet, an ugly accusation but not politically credible in it's old National Socialist sense. I enjoy these stories as much as anyone as STORIES but the interesting part is the human psychology that keeps them interesting. We grow to understand the world in stories. Our only way to see the future is through stories. Some stick with us because we are attuned to cautionary tales. That's good because there is a lot to be cautious about.
