Abstract This brief summary reports that Salman signed an affidavit containing "pertinent testimony" after having reviewed and corrected it. The Salman affidavit is held by the Martin to be useful to the War Crimes case and "to persons concerned with the prosecution against Raeder and Doenitz" because of its admissions regarding the "sink-at-sight" policy. This document is a typewritten copy of adequate quality on standard, slightly browning paper in good condition.
