Nazi Gold in Argentina

Titles don't come much more self-explanatory than "Nazi Gold in Argentina." Rolo Pereyra's documentary follows the money from the Third Reich to the supposedly neutral Latin American nation before, during and after WWII. Despite much deliberately lost or obscured evidence, helmer and his lineup of interviewed historians find plenty to suggest that receptivity toward ex-Nazis and their ill-gotten wealth remains one of Argentina's dirtier secrets.

Titles don’t come much more self-explanatory than “Nazi Gold in Argentina.” Rolo Pereyra’s documentary follows the money from the Third Reich to the supposedly neutral Latin American nation before, during and after WWII. Despite much deliberately lost or obscured evidence, helmer and his lineup of interviewed historians find plenty to suggest that receptivity toward ex-Nazis and their ill-gotten wealth remains one of Argentina’s dirtier secrets. Given a subject and slick tabloid style that practically scream “cable,” feature should have no trouble finding buyers among those nets who prefer their edutainment laden with swastikas and dramatic re-enactments.

Little here will be news to those already fascinated by the theme, but average viewers may find the chronicle eye-opening. Argentine political, military and biz interests allowed Nazi spies to operate covertly throughout the country while expediting transfer of billions in “Nazi gold” from Europe. When a 1943 military coup brought Peron to power, these ties were strengthened, with leading Nazi fugitives and foreign collaborators welcomed as confidential aides or set up in lucrative post-war businesses. Input from numerous international scholars helps offset the polished package’s slightly pulpy tenor; re-enactment scenes are elaborate.
