SpouseJuan Perón
FactShe and Perón were sympathetic to the Nazi cause because Adolf Hitler was opposed to Communism. As many as 9,000 former Nazis and collaborators - including Dinko Sakic, Josef Mengele, and Adolf Eichmann - may have fled to South America, 5,000 of them settling in Argentina. The book "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Latin America" (2011) claims Perón and Eva accepted property looted from Jewish Holocaust victims as payment for granting asylum.


Eva Perón was an Argentine political leader who served as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952. She was a powerful advocate for women’s rights and helped to improve the lives of the working class. Eva was born on May 7, 1919, in Los Toldos, Argentina. Her parents were poor and she was the youngest of five children. Eva had little formal education but was a quick learner. She left home at the age of 15 to pursue a career in show business.

Eva found success as an actress and singer. She met Juan Perón, a politician, in 1944 and they married the following year. Eva became an important political figure in her own right and was instrumental in her husband’s election to the presidency in 1946. As First Lady, Eva worked tirelessly to improve the lives of the poor and working class. She founded the Eva Perón Foundation, which provided assistance to those in need.

Eva also helped to pass legislation that gave women the right to vote and improved working conditions for women. She was beloved by the Argentine people but her health began to decline in 1951. Eva Perón died of cancer on July 26, 1952, at the age of 33. Her funeral was one of the largest public events in Argentine history. ..
