Abstract This document is the German original of the Winter interrogation (see preceding document for the English translation). Anni Winter knew Hitler personally and was acquainted with certain other high-ranking Nazis. Mrs. Winter's remarks touch on Bormann's influence on Hitler, Hess's flight to England, her own relationship to Hitler (which she denies ever evolved into intimacy), Hitler's personal financial situation, as well as on Hitler's general opinion of many prominent Nazis, particularly Goering. This interrogation is noted to have taken place in Munich, at Wiedenmayerstrasse 43/3, in Geheimrat Zentz' [sic] apartment. The document is a typewritten carbon copy made on both sides of each page. The paper is thin, browning, and somewhat fragile, although not nearly as brittle as that of many other documents.
Keywords Responsibility; Hess's flight to England; Relation to Hitler; Nazi Party; Nazi High Command
