In Adolf Hitler’s early rise to power, he stirred the souls of impressionable youth in alehouses of Munich and beyond. One such young man, Hans Reinhard Richter, ignored his brother’s warnings about the mad man and immersed himself in Hitler’s promises for a greater Germany. "I put on my black shirt and marched." He joined the Nazi Party and quickly rose in ranks to answer to the likes of Himmler and Goering. As an SS officer himself, Hans was in charge of overseeing coal mines, reconfiguring them as gold depositories. He fulfilled his superiors’ orders to steal from banks, museums, even concentration camp victims to build vast wealth for the party. After his first wife, an SS spy, died during childbirth, Hans married Irma. By that time, both had become increasingly disillusioned with empty promises of Hitler and his henchmen. They embarked on a dangerous mission to siphon off a portion of the gold, gems, and valuable art they had stolen for the Nazis. Hans and Irma opened accounts under fictitious names and hid their stashes in banks across Europe. Once Hitler initiated the Final Solution, Hans broke with Nazi Germany and courageously joined, first, the OAS and then the CIA to investigate reported sightings of Hitler in South America. Did he find the Fuehrer or did he reach a dead end?
