Even after countless books, movies, and TV shows have been written and produced about the Second World War, there’s still so much that those of us on the outside don’t know.
From the lost identity of a man who changed the tides of the war to the disappearance of a high-ranking Nazi, here are some of the greatest mysteries surrounding World War II.
To this day, the German head of the Gestapo, Heinrich Müller, remains the senior most figure of the Nazi regime ever captured. Although historians found a death certificate that says he died in Berlin in 1945, it’s impossible to prove its legitimacy.
Some reports say that Müller was spotted in Cuba and Argentina long after that. At one point, a man in Panama named Francis Willard Keith was believed to be Müller himself. Even Müller’s wife thought it was him! Unfortunately, fingerprint scanning proved that this wasn’t the case.
