Abstract As its title indicates, this document is a secondary supplement to Warlimont's original statement (section 10.07; see preceding documents). This addition is a list of seven discrete items, all of which provide examples of Warlimont's relative insignificance within the Nazi scheme and his personal invisibility to Hitler. Item 4, which refers to Warlimont's having been blacklisted by Himmler, stands out insofar as it suggests that the SS Chief considered Warlimont an enemy. The other items indicate neglect and possibly low esteem, rather than potential persecution. This document, although marked "COPY," is a typewritten original. The paper is of good quality and is generally stable.
