Did KLM Help the Nazis?

A new documentary accuses Dutch carrier KLM of aiding Nazis to escape to South America after the second world war.  In a refreshingly candid response, a spokesman for the airline says:

"The checks we have done in our archive so far have not delivered any
specific information about this sort of transportation. But that does
not mean that it has not been done."  At least I admire that they’re not categorically denying the whole thing.

The investigation suggests that the airline may have helped Nazis escape Germany by flying them without the proper papers to Argentina through Switzerland. 

I don’t need to re-write the whole article here — it’s worth a read.
