It is my understanding that German engineers built or collaborated in the construction of this reservoir and dam in the 1930s'.
I recall a bronze plaque that included a profile of Hitler that was on the dam.
Does anyone have any information or period images of this project??
Many thanks to all and Best Regards, John

The dam was started by Lazaro Cardenas, another mustachioed strong man.
He was one of the few who protested Hitler's occupation of Austria or to actively help the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. Furthermore the Mexican Constitution forbade the presence of foreign troops on Mexican soil. So I think it unlikely to be true.
The following plaque of him does resemble some of Hitler:
