Martin Bormann was a Nazi party official. He was in chare of the finances of the Nazi party.

Official narrative

The official narrative has it that Martin Bormann died whilst trying to escape the encirclement of Berlin by the Red Army on 30 April 1945. It rests largely on the testimony of Arthur Axeman, leader of the Hitler Youth and one of his companions on the break out attempt. He later claimed that he found Bormann's body after they went in separate directions and he was forced to double-back by a Red Army patrol. Soviet Lt. General Konstantin Telegin recalls his men bringing him Bormann's diary. There were persistent reports of sightings from Munich to various South American locations over subsequent decades. In 1998 genetic tests on a skull by the German authorities apparently confirmed it was that of Martin Bormann.[citation needed]

John Ainsworth Davis' suggestion that Bormann survived

In 1997 former wartime COPP commando John Ainsworth-Davis, under the pen-name Christopher Creighton, published Op JB, his account of a supposed allied raid into Berlin to snatch Bormann. [1] The alleged top secret MI6 operation was carried out, he says, with the knowledge and approval of only King George VI, Winston Churchill, Ian Fleming, Lord Louis Mountbatten and Desmond Morton. The book contains facsimiles of typed letters from Winston Churchill and Ian Fleming supporting Ainsworth-Davis' story. John says a 'double' of Bormann was taken with them on the raid who'd had dental surgery so that he would match the real Bormann. In an interview with Buenos Aires based British journalist Laurence De Mello Ainsworth-Davis says, "We took Bormann out, and the other chap was blown to pieces." [2]

Nuremberg trial in absentia

That the official narrative that Martin Bormann died in Berlin at the end of the war took some time to become established can be gauged from the fact that in October 1946 the Nuremberg trials sentenced Bormann to death in absentia.[3]


Since 1945, there were persistent sightings of Bormann.[3]
