‘Hunting Hitler’ Show Accidentally Reveals Face Of Nazi War Criminal’s Grandson

The History Channel tv show “Hunting Hitler” accidentally revealed the face of a Nazi war criminal’s grandson, the New York Daily News reported.

During a recap of the interview during the show, footage from the interview was shown that did not blur the man’s face, as it had been when the interview was first shown. It is not clear who the interview subject is.

Viewers quickly noticed the error and took to Twitter to ridicule the show and the History Channel for its mistake.

The show, which just ended its third season, is based on the premise that Adolph Hitler likely escaped Berlin before it was captured by Allied forces. The historical record holds that Hitler shot himself in his command bunker in May 1945.

The show has been tied to conspiracy theorist media, and one of the hosts has been a guest on Infowars.
