The lady in the photograph grew up beleiving that she was part of Germany's Royalty and that she was Countess Nora Daisy von Kirschberg. She was never able to question why a Countess had to live a life in utter poverty, most of this time in Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil) where she shared a shack with dogs, cats, garbage, lice, mice? She had arived to Foz do Iguaçu back in the early 70s with mother Countess Nora von Kirschberg who had once been married to a Count and Former Military called Kurt Bruno von Kirschberg. The family had to escape Germany with the Nazis on their heels.
It is possible that Adolf Hitler never died in Germany. It is possible that he may have died in Paraguay. It is also possible that he did not escape Germany alone. According to a book that is ready to go to press in Brazil,
in Foz do Iguaçu to be exact, Magda Goebels and one of her daughters - a daughter fathered by Hitler somewhere in 1936 also came to Paraguay and lived on a farm until her father died.
A lady that called herself a Countess and lived in misery in Foz do Iguaçu for over 30 years may be the answer to many hidden facts about the Nazis that fled Germany after World War II. Luiz and Christiane (surnames withheld) two MDs that live in the city that houses Iguassu falls have written a book about the story. Their conclusion is that Countess von Kirschberg as she was known in town was on board a KLM’s plane that flew from Schiphol to Rio de Janeiro via Zurich, Lisbon, Dakar and Natal in 1947. According to the story told by the Countess, the plane landed in Rio de Janeiro. From there the Countess, her Mother called Nora Friz, her father were then flown to Campo Grande, also Brazil, en route to Asuncion Paraguay. The last leg of the trip was overland on a 13-hour stretch to Encarnación, Paraguay.
The family was connected to high rank Nazis and the doctors learned after four years of interviews and one year of hands on caring for the aging countess that her name and title were fake – just the creation of a ‘persona’ that she had to live throughout her post war life. After the countess’s father died, Countess Mother and Countess Daughter embarked on an 18-year long trip that ended up bringing them to Foz do Iguaçu in 1972. For years there has been suspicion that Mother and Daughter were in fact Eva Braun and a Hitler's daughter.
Gerald Paine an American that might also answer for another name and nationality spent years chasing them while he tried to convince authorities about the duo's identity. Local newspaper articles from the 80s have vented the possibility. "They were nearly right - Franco and Christiane say - they just were a little bit off the track". The child would-be countess was really Hitler's daughter but not with Eva Braun.
Likewise, the woman that the spies chased was not Eva Braun. The doctors discovered that the lady was in fact Magda Goebbles. The 1.400-page book is rich in details, drawings and facts that show how the family left Europe, what the plan was; how a fake identity and a fake family were created in order to escape persecution. The Mother Countess supposedly died in 1978 in an accidental fire in the family shack. There is enough evidence that someone else died in that fire. The Daughter Countess died in 2006.
Franco is an ophthalmologist and also has a bachelor degree in journalism. Christiane is a Gynecologist and was the Countess's doctor in a public health post in the area the countess lived. In the last years of life the countess accepted to tell much of what she knew and also gave the doctors a trunkful of papers, documents and drawings. Even the countess's cat Mieze was delivered to the doctor couple for protection. Franco and Christiane are looking for an editor interested in funding this first part of the story.
Most of the book's material came from home-made bound drawing book and diaries kept by the Countess daughter; One of the drawings show the KLM airplane that flerw them across the Artklantic to what could be a safe and quiet place in South America.
