Abstract In this memo, Dr. von Schlabrendorff proposes to interview the two German officers named above on the subject of the German General Staffs opposition to Hitler. Neither man is present in Nuremberg, although it seems that the author believes both men are in different POW camps in Italy. This document is handwritten and signed by von Schlabrendorff and is probably unique. The paper is browning and fragile.
