During the war, Argentinian President Juan Peron, pictured with his wife Eva in Buenos Aires in 1950, sold 10,000 blank Argentine passports to ODESSA - the organisation set up to protect former SS men in the event of defeat. Over 5,000 war criminals fled to South America during the last days of the war.
Eva Peron... One of my favorite women... Truly inspirational with class, poise, heart and courage. A passion that came from adversity, the understanding of struggle and hardship and strength to look above while high society looked down... What an amazing story.
